Photography Shenanigans – Fun with Watercolors and Moon Shots

Even though I remembered last night’s super pink moon I wasn’t really ready for it. Earlier in the day I’d gone outside to take pictures of my backyard stream using long exposures. My Sony RX10 has some cool functions so I also used one… Continue Reading “Photography Shenanigans – Fun with Watercolors and Moon Shots”

Good Morning Moonshots

This morning I woke early – too, too, early – could it be the cats wanting out at 4:00 and back in again at 5:00? I made my coffee and went to my office and saw the moon shining through the window. I’m already… Continue Reading “Good Morning Moonshots”

Night Sky

I’ve always been intrigued by the night sky and have fond memories of sleeping outside under heaven’s canopy watching for falling stars. In college I took an Astronomy course and the best part was our visit to the rooftop to look at the Universe… Continue Reading “Night Sky”

I Saw the Blue Moon Rising

Okay so it wasn’t blue but that’s what they call it; the second full moon in a calendar month and all the more rare on Halloween. We had clear skies and no trick or treaters so I pulled out my camera to practice my… Continue Reading “I Saw the Blue Moon Rising”

Looking to the Sky – The Moon from my Backyard

Embracing the Moon

It was a warm and pleasant evening, quiet but for the chirping of the frogs. I watched as the moon rose full in the sky, embraced by the trees, and was blessed. ~ Susanne

Venus and the Pleiades

This week Venus is putting on quite a show so I set up my tripod and got this photo from the front yard.   Honestly I didn’t see the star cluster Pleiades with my naked eye but my camera did. During these trying times it’s… Continue Reading “Venus and the Pleiades”

Photography Fun – A 2020 Space Odyssey

I hadn’t photographed the moon yet this year  – how could I with all that rain? – so when I saw it glowing last night in its crescent form with Venus nearby I thought I’d give it a whirl. The sliver you see is… Continue Reading “Photography Fun – A 2020 Space Odyssey”
