Sunday Stills - Moon...

Here's our task this week:
"I figure ya’ll needed a tough challenge for next week and since there is a full moon or mostly full the next few days this could be the biggest challenge to date. Now don’t despair, you don’t have to have a crystal clear moon to be interesting. I have found out the last few weeks we have some very creative folks who participate here and I can’t wait to see the results next week.
Good luck and happy shooting….Ed
Hint: The best times to take the pic is at moonrise or moonset, this is when the moon is at its closest to the earth and not so washed out by the sun during its highest zenith.
I put up some examples of moon pics I shot, two were with my trusty point and shoot.."
Well I have to say that my point and shoot Kodak Easy Share is not very good at taking moon pictures. I tried my best and here are the ones that I like the best. Maybe one day I will actually go out and buy a battery for my 35mm SLR camera. :)


  1. The first one looks mighty familiar. You'll have to check my post out in the morning.

  2. Very nice moon through the trees shot.

  3. I liked the first one best, I like how the trees frame the moon!

  4. Nice moons, I love the way the trees frame the moon

  5. I really like the second one with the tree limbs and twigs showing it off! :)

  6. The moon through the trees is great. Really nice pics.

    Mine are up over at my photo blog

  7. Nice pics. this was a tough challenge.

  8. I really like tree brantches framing the moons!

  9. The tree shot is really nice...I had the same issues as you with the dark, night shots...good job though!
