From My Window

From My Window

Cuppa called me for supper from my recumbent and convalescent position last afternoon around five o'clock. Upon opening my bleary eyes, I saw this sight, or most of it, right from my bed: the crescent moon, sunset and branches. It looked so fine that I went hunting for my camera. Shooting in low light and, therefore, low shutter speeds can be problematic, and some of my attempts were blurry, but this one came out fairly well. The branches on the right are those of a maple tree in our own backyard; everything else is at some distance.

This is a lovely shot of the moon. I have tried, mostly unsuccessfully, to snap some moon shots. Such a lovely jewel in our night sky. I will keep trying.

Great shot, AC. Well composed and exposed.

I may not be writing much, but I'm still an avid reader, for what it's worth...

I gather from the more recent post regarding the wonderful border collie that you're on the mend again. These pictures are so beautiful. It keeps us going, eh? 'Beauty' that is. In all its forms: dogs, kids, spouses and a sliver of the New Moon.
