Moon shots just never work out very well for me. Still, can't resist trying. The above is before I realized the flash was on. Below is without. Didn't know 'til after taking these that it was the famous blue moon.. or almost. That's tonight, but the remnants of that hurricane have clouded the sky . . . No complaints here; it's actually raining!

The two pics below are things that you only see "once in a blue moon."

Night shots are tricky. Did you use the camera from Barry?

iPhone, maybe that's my problem... but wait! Took numerous pics w the "Barry cam," of the moon, a few times.. and no better, so it must be me.

i love the look of the moon behind the clouds! i finally took the time to figure out the manual settings on my camera and busted out the tripod last night. pretty happy with the results.

one of the tricks for taking moon pictures is to use a tripod since the exposure is longer and you can't hold the camera still enough with your hands to avoid blurring the image. and i only know that because, like you, i keep trying to take them (without a tripod) because the moon is so cool. nice post, trigster. love the fishies.

Late, but this post showed at the bottom of a current one.  I'm always taking moon shots too.  This one (non-flash) is great.

I missed much hanging `round @ Open Salon.

I woke up kind pissed. Who'd not be cranky?

I wonder if there is outhouse on bright moon?

I hopped out of a bed to go to the bathroom.
