I’m Mooning You

Filed under: Random — Little Miss @ 7:59 pm

Sitting at my desk in my new office this afternoon, I looked out the window at approximately 5:30. It was still light outside, but the moon was rising and gorgeous. As I watched, over the next 45 minutes I took several pictures in progression. I’ll share them with you here. Some might be blurry. Blame it on my eyesight. Still, I think they are hauntingly beautiful after a crisp, almost Spring-like day, full of gorgeous Northwest sunshine.

Starting to get darker, and the moon brighter.

  1. Oh, beautiful pictures, Claire! I love the rising full moon on a cold clear night, too. With your permission, I just may have to use one of the 1st two for my computer’s screensaver at work. Do you mind?

  2. Bev, How about I put my name on them first. I’ll email them to you full size.

  3. Wow! These came out so great. I love moon photos, and these are beautiful. There was supposed to be an eclipse tonight and I forgot all about it. I’m mad at myself for not setting an alarm clock or something. I wanted to see it.

  6. @Wendy: I’m amazed they came out so well too, considering I was shooting through a dirty window, and having to zoom far across the housetops. That tree was probably three blocks away by city block measurements. I forgot about the eclipse too. I’ll have to recheck my horoscope to see what it’s supposed to impact in my life. Hee hee.

    @MB: You sure can have one. Which one do you want? Tell me by counting from the top, and I’ll email you a full size one.

  8. Okay, you got it. I will send it out to you and Bev (the one she wanted) after I get back from massage and chiropractor. So look for it in your email this evening.

  9. Thanks, Claire! I really like #2 but not sure if the size will work, so I’d love both #1 and #2 (so I can try it) if you can.
