Morning Moonlight

Here’s a moon picture because Wendy posted a moon picture. Since I’m in a different part of the country, I thought it would be fun to take one here for comparison. This was taken at about 7:00 a.m. today from my backyard up here in the Pacific Northwest. It doesn’t really get light out at this time of year until around 7:30 or 8:00.


Do you know how hard it is to take night pictures? Well, it is for me. I really want to learn how to adjust the settings on my camera so I can get better night shots. This one, the moon is fuzzy because of the hazy clouds in front of it. However the other night, the moon was so bright, and the sky so clear, that I thought a light was on in my room. That’s even through the drawn curtains.

Anyhooo. Maybe I’ll get better pictures another time.



  1. This is so pretty, thanks for posting it. Like you, I’d also like to know how to take better moon photos. I need it dumbed down for me, though. Although I love taking photos and playing with lenses, etc., the photography articles I read are really confusing for me. In high school my photography teacher would get so frustrated with me because I took great photos but couldn’t tell her how I did it beyond “I just fooled with the camera till I liked what I saw.” I ended up getting a very low grade because of my inability (and unwillingness) to comprehend the technical side of it all. Now Buck is equally frustrated with me and my disability in what I call “camera math.”

  2. The sad thing for me is that photography talent runs in my family. Did I ever mention that my late uncle Howell Conant was Princess Grace’s personal photographer? My grandfather and his father had photography businesses in Wisconsin. What happened to me? I can get some great photos with excellent composition, but I can’t for the life of me remember the difference between aperture settings and whatever the other one is. LOL. My daughter, on the other hand, is a genius with photography. I have been encouraging her for years to start that as a business for herself. I’ve even got a domain name reserved, but she went and got married and changed her name. Some of the black and whites she took as part of a photography class are incredible.

    Sigh…I miss trees.
