{POTD} Sky watch Friday #53

This past weekend I had the opportunity to practice my skills at Night Photography.  An almost full moon was just coming over the horizon in the distance as I looked out my front door before going to bed.  What I saw inspired me to grab my camera and delay crawling into slumberland. 

This is one of the better shots I was able to capture.  The clouds helped make for a more interesting photograph.  You can see movement in the clouds since I had the shutter set to 30 seconds in order to allow enough light in to capture the photograph.  I have to say I had lots of fun practicing Night Photography.  I think I will have to venture into Joshua Tree National Park sometime soon so I can get a way from town and cars passing by.

{POTD} Skywatch Friday

Well today I have been recovering from my crazy day yesterday.  It was my daughter’s 16th birthday.  To celebrate I took her and two friends to Disneyland.  They had a great time while I was poolside with my son at my prnts house.  The drive home at one in the morning and then doing a few chores when I got home {taking out the trash cans for pick up} really took it out of me.

I have seen a few bloggers I subscribe to participate in a theme called Skywatch Friday.  I decided to participate this week since I actually had some recent photographs of the sky.  I walked outside the other night just as the sun was setting and ws able to photograph the moon rising out over Joshua Tree National Park.
