Moonstruck!

Almost every time there is a full moon and a reasonably clear sky I feel compelled to get outside with the camera and try to get a good photograph. I like the way that the clouds are slightly tinted around the moon in this shot.


I'm never satisfied with my results of course .....................



..................... but just have to keep trying. I love seeing the moon through the branches of a tree.


The frogs in the pond enjoy the moon too, and each night I was outside this week they were croaking away in fine voice. Every morning there was a new batch of frogspawn among the plants in the pond. There is masses of it already so the newts will be very well fed this spring and with a bit of luck they won't eat it all and we'll get a few more frogs.

lovely pics Heather - definitely a mysterious air about the moon.

That's a beautiful moon!

I miss my little pond. My husband filled it in. We still have the creek, but the pond was a joy to me. We won't have nearly so many frogs this year.

Some cameras are notorious for failing to capture a good image of the moon. I like your shots of it through the branches. I thought the full moon this time was the brightest I had ever seen it.

Excellent moon photos Heather. Newts on a diet of frogspawn - you'll definitly get more newts but not sure about the frogs.

I think you have done very well with your moon photos, especially the one through the trees. I really must take some next full moon. Cheers

Such atmospheric shots Heather ....great photography!
And you've just reminded me of the days when I used to keep frogspawn in the classroom; ah, happy memories (especially when the froglets escaped ;-)
