Hazy Moon


When I went  out to put the garbage out yesterday evening at about 7:30 I looked up and saw a very hazy looking moon , lots of moister in the sky. The nights have been cold , very damp and foggy   reminds me of England ‘s weather , it’s the  same in the mornings   but the sun rises and it all disappears and has been very pleasant each day !

I went  in to get my camera and try to see if I could get photos of the hazy moon . With the thick haze  in front of the moon I couldn't focus on just the moon so I decided to take photos of the moon behind our  big tree so that the camera would have something solid to focus on !

I played around with the photos after wards and this is what I decided on . I think it looks  eerie yet interesting !

                                                    The sky was so thick with fog !

I like trying all different ways to photograph things  , sort of a challenge for myself  at times. Night shots can be tricky no matter what the weather . I will tweak here and there with my photos but most of the time I like to leave them just as they are . I may change a photo from original to say antique looking with layers of  different adjustments  but the photo has to suit the change .

   Thick fog lifting this morning as the sun is trying it’s best to burn through it ! Another pleasant day in store for us today .

                                      Until next time hope you all have a good day !

It's been quite foggy these past few mornings but the sun soon burns it off.No need for a fire until the evenings.

I have a couple of very similar shots of the moon. I'm still working at getting the best night photos. Thank goodness for digital so the really fuzzy ones can get deleted.

They are wonderful and eerie.
I heard you are getting a lot of fog up there it is sunny and spring like here, light jacket weather. I like it:) B

I have never been able to get good night shots, Elaine, and so never usually try. But, glad you experimented and shared your results.

Hi Elaine...A little eerie, but also very pretty !!
I do like the first, but both are looking good!! : )
I have a terrible time with night shot's so mostly don't bother !!

I really like those shots. Especially the small reflections of light on the branches contrasting with the moon.
