Excellent capture.
It can fire any poet's imaginations. :)

Oh yes! Beautiful! I love this, and the branch silhouettes are the perfect touch.

Wonderful! Reminds me of some kind of smoking globe ball a witch would use. Just sayin'.

Laerte Pupo said...

Wonderful moon.

Pat Tillett said...

Hi there,
I don't know how or when (a while back to be sure), but your blog got dropped off my list. I don't know when or why it happened, but I'm signing on again. Still love your photos!

Flora said...

Beautiful!!!

Deb said...

that is beautiful....I guess I was too busy watching the Rangers last night to see the moon....

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That is a great shot.

Berts Blog said...

I watched the moon last night as it came up over our mountains and it was nothing like that.

What a beautiful night you had, what a great job of capturing the detail, light and shadows.

Great shot.

Paula said...

We watched that moon on the way from the ranch and it looked like a big ole' pumpkin. Our news men were calling it a Hunter's moon too.

MarieElizabeth said...

That's a wonderful night shot without a tripod. Very nice!

Dawn said...

A moon one could howl under:D

Oh my gosh... that is just about as pretty a moon shot as I have ever seen!!!

SweetMarie said...

Incredible photo! Sooo pretty!

Martha Z said...

Great shot. I don't often pull out the tripod, there is often a tree, railing, husband or some other inanimate object to steady the shot.

latebloomerbuds said...

Lisa RedWillow said...

Fantastic and hard to get shot. Love it and the color.

Fabulous harvest moon! Maybe I'll just have to wander outside tonight, and hope the clouds have gone away.

Beautiful -- and now I have the old country song "shine on harvest moon" playing in my head. Great. :)

Great picture~!~! This evening the moon here in Iowa is big and bright with the planet Jupitor sitting right next to it looking like a headlamp in the sky. Very beautiful~!

Dicky Bird said...

Nice picture. I thought of you today as I tried to capture a picture thru my widow...a Cooper's Hawk chased a Eastern Tohee (sp?) into my window and was hovering over him and then was eating him...I ran for my camera because it was right there...but, my point and shoot capabilities are no good thru a screen....neat to see anyway.

heyBJK said...

Beautiful! I love the orange! So much nicer than the bright white when it's high in the sky.

Robin said...

T, wow, very nice. I bet it was super in person. Too many clouds to see it here!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

What a beautiful shot! Don't know how a tripod could have made it any better! It was cloudy here last night, so didn't get to see it.

Liesl said...

Awesome Teresa!

Moon? What's that? All we have is clouds and rain. It's pretty cool, especially since it's handheld.

Ms. ~K said...

What a gorgeous moon! Not using a tripod didn't take anything away from your capture. It's perfect!

Congratulations on a wonderful shot! I love the silhouettes of the trees at the bottom of the moon!

Beautiful photo! I love how you captured the silhouettes of the branches and still managed to get the detail of the moon. I tried that tonight with no luck.

Susan said...

WOW! That is beautiful, very beautiful!!!!!

Wonderful harvest moon, love its cracked, crinkly bottom..!! A knee shot, very good, pity I can't do that anymore, my titanium ones are pretty good, but not that steady.
