Moments : Shooting the Moon

Illuminated

Waiting on the Moon

it cast a haunting glimmer

Shooting the Moon

everlasting light

Moonlight Madness


The night sky is a miracle of infinitude.
~Noelani Day~


Etc.
  • The prompt for this weeks haiku: Never-ending.
  • My intent was to go to Bass Lake to get some fall color shots last week.
  • We didn't make it before the sun started going down.
  • We stayed to shoot the moon because of a suggestion from another photographer.
  • I was glad that I took the strangers advice - even if it was cold & I was hungry.
  • I need to practice night shots more, I don't do them enough.
  • The days are getting shorter. I barely make it home in time for good light.
  • Maybe I need to make a lightbox so that I can take photos inside!
  • Speaking of inside, we have gutted our laundry room, it looks so much better.
  • I forgot how big that room was......it was so cluttered. Now, it's a brand new space!
  • I will work on more excursions this weekend, so look forward to some fresh outings!!
I hope you all have a terrific weekend!

  10. Pretty haiku. Although your title reminded me playing the card game hearts. I think I've got cards on the brain. Lovely images though, capturing the moon can be tricky and you did a wonderful job. :)

  16. Yey! Moon pics are the best. Very pretty. :)

    If I have something to prop myself onto, I like to expose mine like it's daylight (which can take 2-5 minutes of exposure sometimes).

    Happy weekend! :)

  26. Wow! Night reflections! This is too cool. Your name is Noelani? I student taught at Noelani School in Manoa too many years ago. I happen to love the name so it drew me to your blog and I'm glad it did. You have so many wonderful photos. I'm going to stay a bit to have a stroll through your pictures.

  28. Oh wow - those are gorgeous!

    I need to practice night shots as well, though I think you are light-years ahead of me. :) I think this same thought every year, just before the holiday season - which is full of night-time shot potentials. Why I don't think of it in January is beyond me. :)

  29. Those are beautiful. I could stare at those shots all day.
    Well done!

  30. ur Labels: the 'Light', was a prisoner to the 'Moon', the 'Night Shot' at me, a whispered tremor of 'reflection', so the 'silhouette' of sensuality
    danced..
    ..many thanks..
