  2. The moon is so pretty! It's full again now but i guess with the clouds we won't be able to see it.

  3. I ADORE that first shot! Wow - isn't that gorgeous? I've always been fascinated with the moon. My grandmother used to sing to me and rock me on her front porch, when I was little.

  4. Awesome shots. I have been disappointed to not see the moon due to clouds. But Friday night was spectacular during milking time. I got a camera for Christmas and need to learn how to use it...

  5. I was kicking myself for not making time to photograph that big moon. These are wonderful...especially that first one! What lens did you use for it?

  6. Wow, what wonderful moon shots! We had thick clouds all weekend, so we missed the sight of that bright full moon. Thanks for showing us what we missed!

  7. I took some shots too but none good enough to go with the poem I wanted to post, an older one about the bold faced moon. I think the moon deserves to be hard to capture

  8. We had thick clouds too, but the moon peeked out over them anyway. Really spooky looking and cool at the same time.
