Mooning it up ?

This is what my "auto-adjust" did to one of my moon pictures .. you have to admit it does make you stop and look at it.




Anyone who has watched ? my blog , knows i am a total MOON NUT ... I snap away for way too many pictures .. I don't have a proper telescopic lens .. I don't know when to say STOP to myself when I get in a moon phase ? play on words there .. sorry ... I even startle poor hubby while he is driving to shout "Hey !! it is only 2 PM and the moon is out and LOOK !!! it is huge !!! .. meanwhile hubby tries to remain calm and continue driving while said nutter of a wife is full on nose stuck to the window going WOW !! What a beautiful moon ... I have to get a picture of that when we get home !!!" .. I admit I am beyond child like , it is embarrassing but I am in love with the moon and the stars and since the stars aren't as obliging as the moon .. well .. this happens.

Maybe because the moon is so influential in a gardener's life .. and even more so (sorry guys, but this is a woman thing) in a woman gardener's life .. it can not be denied .. we are ruled by the moon so much of our lives, we are inevitably drawn to it consciously or unconsciously .. compound that with a "skywatcher" as I am .. and presto .. more "moon" posts than you ever want to see .. but here we are, on MY blog, so I get to choose !! : )

Ours looked like that this afternoon. I wonder how in my 51 years I haven't learned why I'm seeing a moon during the day...

Miss Cherry !! I went to see your blog and it said it was removed !! I better get over there and see what is going on with you girl : )

Brenda .. that is something I'm not sure of either .. I'm going to look that up and I will post about it so we can both know why ! LOL

Hey Linda ! .. hello there ! I'll keep mooning , don't worry ! : ) LOL

Joey .. I'm glad to have company for my moon club !

VP .. This is a secret .. but in the Spring , on a warm night with a beautiful moon (I have a terrible urge to dance in the garden 'sans" clothes ? LOLOL

Linda .. I have a fixed lens that goes to 18 x optical zoom with my Olympus .. but I long for even better shots .. I think photographers (especially newbies) keep longing for better and better !

I love your pictures!!!!
I also love the full moon when its full of color on a fall night.(-: It is so cool rising over the mountains because it is so big.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Cindee .. Thanks girl ! .. there is nothing like an Autumn moon, I totally agree with you on that one .. it is special : )

Crafty Gardener said...

We have the same camera Joy, I'll just have to play around with the settings a bit more. I'm always dreaming of more too. Keep on mooning!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Linda ! we have the same camera ? .. I bet you have read the manual : )
I still haven't .. and I really mean to .. I'll keep mooning girl !

lisa said...

Hey, I'm with you-the moon is WAY cool, and one can never have too many pictures of it! Yours turned out SPECTACULAR, much better than any I've taken!

Garden Lily said...

Joy, your moon photos are amazing! I have tried (I love the moon, too), but haven't gotten any so crisp and beautiful.

Kylee said...

Joy, you just post away with your moon pictures. I love them and I love the moon, too! So I'm not complaining!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Lisa .. I think we should form a MOONY club ? LOL .. I never get tired of watching it or the sky .. and I'm lucky to be able to get a decent picture with my camera, so that is a happy snap : )

Hello again Garden Lily .. It could be much better if I read my manual and used my tripod .. I'm going to try and accomplish that feat in Spring , fingers crossed ! LOL

Hey Kylee ! .. another Moony : ) I'm glad to have company with loving the moon as I do LOL .. I'll try and improve my shots in the Spring with the tripod and manual thingy ? haha

You captured some spectacular shots of the moon Joy. I never get tired of looking at sky photos especially the moon & stars. :)

Megan said...

I like that auto-adjusted picture, the heavy vignetting is beautiful. I'm always trying to figure out how to get that effect.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi PG .. Thanks girl ! .. I think there is a tie to our gardening and the moon in particular .. but the sky is something we study more than non gardeners .. we know the impact weather has more closely than most : )

Hi Megan .. Thank you : )
But you would laugh at me when I'm going over photos ..it takes forever to decide what to do and how to arrange the sequence for a posting .. I drive myself NUTS ! LOL
