Moon over Minnesota

I do know I don't have
a great camera for shots like this.
I do know I'm not a great
photographer.

Yet, I can't help myself
by trying as I am
so smitten with
the moon of late.

I hope you're not too terribly
tired of my attempts.

The clouds swept in so fast
and away furiously.

It would have been
a wonderful night
to walk,
hand in hand,
with someone special.


Instead,
my romantic heart
and I lingered on the deck,
just a little bit longer.



And enjoyed the
beauty of the night.

I, too, am smitten by the moon. For years, I didn't even pay any attention to it. Now, it seems to be a passion and I love to take shots of the moon. You did catch some great 'mood' with your camera! Have fun with it!

The moon can look wonderful can't it? I have yet to get a good picture of it.
I really like you pictures and the way the clouds are around just adds to it.

I enjoy your pictures. Just about every night, I look out the kitchen window at the moon. I like to think about all the bloggers throughout the country who might be looking up too!!!

I think your photos are just beautiful Jill... I too went out the night of the full moon, camera in hand, and captured it rising up above our mountains to the east of us... I just use a little point and shoot Canon and I am no expert myself, but I DO love taking photos like you do! thanks for sharing... xoxo Julie Marie

I think you did a pretty good job with these shots.

Donna said...

Oh Jill!

I love the photo you took!! I haven't tried taking one of the moon yet with my new camera, but now I'm going to try!

I've tried with my old cameras and compared to mine, yours looks like a Ansel Adams photo!

I think your Moon over Minnesota is wonderful!

Blessings for a great weekend!
Donna

Doesn't matter about being a photographer or having the perfect camera if you enjoy it. I like your pictures very much.

We had a dinner party last night and we all sat outside around the table and the most wonderful moon came up. A full moon rising on the horizon really does add something to your occasion.

Add a blanket and a glass of wine and it would be perfect. sandie

I think you take incredible pictures, Jill! I hope you keep sharing them!

Lynne said...

The moon looked just like that last night here too and I went outdoors and took some pictures. However, my pictures don't look like yours. Your point and shoot camera takes some great pictures . . .

Isn't it funny that it looks so similar to the view we had of it down here? It's been pretty awesome, hasn't it?

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I tried taking one of it going down this morning, but it was too far away. I think you did great --- :)

I love cloud covered, hazy moon pictures and yours more than fit the bill! I don't have a camera at the right times to capture them either. Thanks for sharing these! : )..
