It Was A Quiet Longweekend

Hey there !

It was our Canadian  Civic holiday long weekend that we just had and all was quiet on the home front for us here . Sat Papa helped his dad build a new shed and we visited for a while . Miggs and their new pup Jade had fun playing . The weather has been fall like over the weekend with a bit of rain here and there , This morning at 6 am is when Miggs and  I get up  was quite chilly only 9C or48F   and still  a bit chilly now  but fresh and low humidity  .

I wasn't able to get photos of the full moon last night as it was a bit to cloudy but this morning I did as the moon was in the south west  as it was setting early this morning .

            I think this is my best moon shot yet ! Not bad for only a 55-300 mm Telephoto Zoom lens my favorite lens I use all the time . ISO was 200 , Fstop 10 , exposure 1/320 of a second .


Yesterdays clouds were lovely as well all dark and mysterious as thunder rumbled about and rain fell on and off .



Gardens are still doing well some flowers and plants have finished whilst others have just bloomed , Birds are feasting like mad preparing for migration soon , crickets are out in full force as are the grass hoppers , the Canadian Geese are practicing their flight paths now flying low over the house so low I can hear the winds whistle through their feathers , and all are busy doing what they do this time of year lol !

Miggs and I have been enjoying our morning walks every day still and puttering about  so it was a quiet weekend and now it will probably be a quiet week , just how I like it .

                                                         Until next time .

The weather sure has been changeable. There was a suspected tornado touch down in the County not far from us. In fact we had only been driving through the area the day before. Great moon photo. The mornings have been cool but the afternoons are lovely. I'm not missing all the humidity.

Our weekend at the cottage was totally unbelievable...
The rain...thunder...lightning did not give up Thursday night and all day Friday...I have never seen waves and clouds like that before.
I think there is rain this weekend too! DARN...
Enjoy your week...
Cheers!

Wow, that is one awesome moon shot! Congrats, it's beautiful. We are having a very dry summer, no rain in over a month.

A great moon photo, Elaine, and so clear and well defined. I wondered if you hand held the camera or used a tripod.
