M-O-O-N spells moon

I have always had trouble taking any worthwhile pictures of our beloved satellite, but with a few tips I picked up, I had some (very) moderate success.

I like the spookiness of the B&W.

But I also like the true color here, and the branch is a nice touch.

With the aid of my trusty photoshop, I was able to create a more artistic rendering.

And again. This one is my favorite, evocative and moody.

I know I'm not around much these days. Work and, of course, life-in-general, haven't left me much time or energy for my hobbies lately. Hopefully I will post more regularly soon, I'm just not sure yet when "soon" will be. If you're still checking in on me, I thank you!

These are really good, Susie. I love the last one, too - it could be the setting for a movie! Very cool.

I have been checking in on you to see what words of wisdom you have to share with the masses. I keep thinking I might see a little blurb about your adorable new niece, but, alas, nothing! Just kidding! :-)

Nicely captured! You did a great job of getting the darker areas. I love your PS works too - the moon looks like an glass ball ornament hanging in the trees. Lovely.

Good night, Moon.
