Friday photo hunt – Moon

The word for this week’s photo challenge is ‘moon’ and luckily I didn’t have to go too far back in the archives to find some suitable photos. Some readers may remember one of my posts from May last year when I’d taken several shots of the moon at different times within the space of an hour, mainly to test my camera’s capabilities on long range night time shooting, so as the photos fit the topic I’m repeating some of them here.

The sky clouded over after 10.09 shot and stayed that way for a while so I couldn’t see the moon at all, however the clouds eventually started to disperse and I managed to get a few more shots before my self-allotted hour was up.

Admittedly the quality of some of the shots isn’t the greatest but they were really only an experiment anyway, though they came out better than I expected at the time and they do fit this topic nicely. Next week’s photo will be one of my own choosing and I have something rather nice in mind so although I don’t want to wish the time away I’m looking forward to posting that one.

  1. Huge “well done”. 🌔 The moon is notoriously difficult to photograph – many people think it will be easy because “it’s not that bright” but you’re trying to capture reflected sunlight and it is not that simple, I think your first three images are really lovely. 🌖

    1. I’m glad you like the photos Eileen. As for next week, it’ll be something with an indirect association to something beginning with ‘S’ – that’s all I’m saying 🙂 🙂

  2. What lovely moon pictures. The first three are amazing but I actually like the one with the clouds taken later, it is my favourite.

  3. It was initially the cloud formations across the moon which caught my attention but by the time I’d got the camera out things had changed, though I did get a few shots of the clouds with the light behind them.

    1. Thank you 🙂 The initial cloud formations partially covering the moon looked really good but by the time I’d got the camera out and altered the setting they had disappeared 😦
