Michael Buble' sings Moondance [youtube.com]

Last night's moonrise over our little lake, with a tree and grass on the tee box in the distance (no color saturation added; I steadied the camera on a brick wall without a tripod)

My first attempt to “shoot the moon” with a hand-held camera!

Using my new camera with a 26x zoom and a tripod - definitely better! (I think this looks like a big melon with the stem at the bottom right!)

      The first one is VERY impressive Brenda. Amazing that you could get that bright of color. You should try a version with the reflection cropped out. Well done

      Very nice shots. The first has a wonderful feel to it. The third is just so close and so clear, it's fantastic.

      Wow, that first shot is amazing! The reflection is so beautiful, and I love the little tree that is lit up on the green. The last shot is great too. I love taking pictures of the moon with my telephoto lens, it never ceases to amaze me!

      Exceptional......especially #1!!! The green color really adds to the moodiness. Did the moon provide the lighting on the green or was there another light as well?

      Great set Brenda! I'm always surprised how fast a shutter speed you can use when shooting the moon - it's so bright!!

      Wow! That first is remarkable! The lighting is really unique and odd, which makes it super dramatic & moody! Nice series!
