The Many Moons of Last Night ....

It all started out with me in a panic trying to capture the moon ... an impossible task for me without a decent tripod but I had to try , didn't I ?
Thus the art of "play" with my moon shots but with a bare bones one encased in reality first !

Hi Joy Dear, your moon shots are spooooky!

Hey Harriet said...

I like these moon captures! Very creative! I'm hopeless at moon shots...

Hello there meems ! ... and it was amazing last night as well but shrouded by mists and cloud .. very Halloweeny : )

Gail girl so do I .. especially one with a bit of colour like it was last night. I couldn't get a picture of it .. I have to figure this out before it drives me nuts ! LOL

Grace girl it was an almost perfect night last night .. but of course I couldn't get the "perfect" shot .. darn it allllllll !!!!!!!

Tracy my best moon shots happen when there is still a lot of light left in the sky .. my cameras have night settings but they are useless for moon shots .. we all seem to be in a funk over this ? hahaha

I like the Silent Cold Blue one the best. They are all fascinating though. I saw the moon Friday evening. It clouded up so bad yesterday and even rained, first time in over three weeks! These are nice photos. Sorry I haven't been around to visit, busy and all that, but you know I like coming here to get me Garden Joy.

Peace.

Hi Joe : ) Please don't apologize !
I am so behind in visiting blogs it is embarrassing .. big sigh !
The moon was amazing last night for mere minutes then it clouded over and that was the end of that adventure .. but .. I will be looking for a tripod now .. I don't want to miss the chance of a really great moon shot !
Take care : )

Eileen girl, now wouldn't that be a perfect outlet of my Halloween creativity ? LOL .. that would be fantastic !

Beautiful shots. It was raining here so no moon for us)-: I am glad you got to see it(-:

Oh yes, such a moon. My camera would never have been able to handle it, and my husband didn't bother to try, so it's wonderful to see your photos!

Cindee girl we have rain here now too .. and it looks like it will be for some time to come .. I didn't get all of my garden cores done yet either though !! eeekkkkk !LOL

Kay I am so determined to get better shots of beautiful moons like the past two nights .. I guess a tripod is in order ? LOL

The moon looks good in sepia, and, I might steal your blue moon idea.

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

Beautiful pictures, I thought perhaps you were lucky enough to view more than 1 moon at a time!!! In my dreams, our little planet usually has 2, 3 or more moons. How cool would that be??

GardenJoy4Me said...

Sandy I used "warmfly" on that moon picture it is more subtle than sepia I find .. and YES ! spread the "Blue Moon" around girl it is too gorgeous to keep all to myself ! LOL

Rebecca girl I totally agree ! I would love to see our sky with a variety of moons and stars that are close and bright .. I want to take better pictures at night !!
