“Did it take long to find me? I ask the faithful light.Oh, did it take long to find me? And, are you going to stay the night?”~ Cat Stevens: Moonshadow ~
For Shadow Shot Sunday
WOW, Monica!!! MOST excellent!!!! And the Cat Stevens quote, just perfect, this is one of my absolute favorite posts of yours. Because you know I love snapping the moon and I love Cat Stevens!!! I could name you so many of my favs of his: Father & Son, the Numbers album, Sad Lisa. But I digress. Have you ever gotten such a moon shot before? If so, I have not seen it. It may have taken you a long time to find, but it is WORTH it!!! You have made my weekend!!!!!
I think this is the best moon shot I ever managed and it does not seem very likely I'll be able to do much better unless some time in the future I get an even better camera. The "secret" here is I managed to shoot this at moonrise while the sky was still quite light. I then increased contrast and shadow in the editing (in Picasa) so that I got a blacker tree silhouette and deeper colours in the sky. I've tried shooting the moon in the dark but then I never manage a good picture with the equipment I have.
A beautiful image Dawn it's a lovely capture..
It's not easy capturing the face in the moon, but you've got it there....I can see it :)
Spectacular! I love this ~~ the colors, the contrast ~~ all of it....Just very beautiful and emotional.
beautiful shot - check out Sarah's post- she has done a moonshadow shot this week too...
it is beautiful, really beautiful and I read how you edited it. a great capture and perfect edit. i love the colors behind the black silhouette. I still have never gotten a moon shot.
That is a great moon shot indeed! I have never been able to show such detail-I will bear your tips in mind! My moonshadow is what was cast on my draining board the other night by the full moon!
Such beautiful shadow shot!Please come and see the artistic shadows from the leaves that I captured, have a blessed Sunday!
A great shot!
A stunning photo! I had just stopped singing Cat Stevens after visiting Sarah's blog, now I've started again!!
Enjoyed visiting and reading your quote. That is one stunning sight of the moon.
I've always loved that Cat Stevens lyric--one of my all-time favorite songs. And, coming to you from Moonbeams and Fireflies, I have to say that your photo is simply AWESOME!
