1. Beautiful...barely there 🙂

The color of the lit bottom of the moon is perfect! Great job!

3. Thank you so much, my dear MLAA!

Barely there, indeed. I love seeing the moon like this, even though shooting it is much harder when it's this small.

And how did you know I struggled with the color on the lit bottom? Cause I did. You just validated my efforts and that means a lot.

Thank you.

4. Thanks so much, my dear elleng!

It was just raining here this morning! And now the wind is blowing like mad and the storm is gone...No clouds at all.

12. I love looking up at the moon in its

various stages and seasons, but I lack the equipment and skill to photograph it.

My favorite view of the moon is in October, when autumn winds blow wisps of clouds over it, like pieces of gauze that glow from within.

Or, same season, when heavier clouds surround and pass over it before a new wave of clouds blows in. Reminds me of the opening lines of The Highwayman: The moon was a ghostly galleon, tossed upon cloudy seas.

But yours immediaty brought Alice's Chessie to mind.
