Wonderfully enchanting photos! I saw that moon last night and was struck by it. But I haven't figured out the night settings on my camera!Brenda
Goosebumps! Your moon shots are beautiful, peaceful and enigmatic.
Wonderful, moody shots, Jan! It's almost magical, isn't it?
That is a beautiful glow. I love the moon and you've done a great job capturing it. Love you header
Your photos captured the moment well, Jan! The moon looks mysterious shining through the tree branches.I love to see the snow lit up by the light of a full moon.
Those are pictures of beauty! The mysterious moon.
what great shots you took...love all of them.have a great thursday.erin
This is my first visit to your site and I am so.o.o impressed...your photographs are amazing! Did you take photography lessons? What sort of camera do you use? I ask because I would like to improve the quality of my blog.I am trying to join Ringsurf, but didn't get my site up there yet. You can be sure I will be visiting your blog regularly now that I have found it.Your friend in gardening, Pamela
Good for you to take some photos of the moon, many of us were of similar mind, though not action. Great pics.Janet
I love looking at the moon. It's amazing how bright it can be sometimes. I like how you caught the changes with the clouds moving in.
It looks like it is surrounded by a lovely halo. Shiny indeed, it has been bright lately.
Great photos, Jan! The moon looks gorgeous when seen through foliage/tree branches and you captured the beauty well!
Those really are amazing shots.
Hi my blogger friends, thank you for your comments-they mean so much to me:)I only answer questions on my blog (I visit everyone's blog to say hello)...but there is one question:Pamela asked a question regardingPhotography Lessons and my Camera.NO, I've never had a lesson, haven't read the operating instructions that came with the camera, and don't know a thing about correct settings on my camera.It is a Nikon D40 and I use a 300mm. lens for the zoom. I just 'feel' my way through my photos and snap when I feel it's right.Thanks for your lovely comments;)
Wonderful shots Jan, did you sleep well despite the full moon?Tyra
It was an interesting sky last night. I stepped out last night to call in the cat and noticed the moody moon shining back at me.
Simply WOW! That first one grabbed me. I loved all your visitors in your yard.
Jan,Just STUNNING! I love how you've captured the moon in a photo... difficult to do and you've succeeded so well.CameronPS radiology came back with no problems. :-)
Iiii a bit spookie? where are the wherwulfs??BEAUTIFUL!!Linda
Fabulous Jan - I love moon shots - these are great.K
Great captures, Jan! Mesmerizing!
Wonderful photos. Reminds me of the Noyes poem.THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas.Marnie
Marnie,Thanks for sharing that poem:)
Yes always have the camera close by. It does look like the sun the first photo.Do you thing I can send you some spring bulb I do not know if I am aloud to send the to USA?MB
Hi Jan, I'm gearing up for the backyard bird count this weekend! I was wondering if anyone would see my post yesterday--I meant to SAVE it and accidentally hit PUBLISH. I'd spent quite a bit of time writing it and I do plan to publish it at the end of today. This is my last day at work and wanted to wait until it was officially over (due to weird political situations at work). So it'll reappear, no worries, as will your comment, this evening! Glad you liked it--i don't normally post very personal stuff so was a bit nervous.
Hi Maria, Thank you so much for your offer to send spring bulbs. I'm not really sure about the rules on that, but I tend to think it might not be allowed. Bulbs are plants and I don't think plants are allowed across the borders. You are so very kind to think of that! I wonder what you were thinking of? I have some bulbs and tubers to put in for summmer blooming...so I'm pretty well stocked up!
I did take some shots too but yours... they're just so lovely! Great shots and the last one looks magical!
Jan,The moon has been wonderful over our yard here in the northeast too. I've watched it all week long but haven't taken any photos. Yours here are lovely. Great capturing of the night time beauty.Ann
Just wonderful moon shots! And very poethic written too...I got goosebumps reading your post./Helen
They are amazing, I have tried on occasions to photograph the moon, but it never quite comes out right, so well done, whatever you did you did it right.
I love surreal moon shots and your's are wonderful! Kim
stunning shots! I noticed the moon here as I was driving home and wished I could capture it...and you have done just that..thank you. :)
Beautiful, Jan! Love the moon shots, and the bird pics too. I haven't participated in the GBBD for a long time now -- maybe I will do it next year.
I took some photos of the moon that night, too. I was in Florida, and my aunt and uncle and I took a walk around their development. It was gorgeous!
I love those photographs- so ethereal and unreal. You're an amazing photographer!
Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to comment! Please enjoy your TODAY and all of the gifts in YOUR garden of life!Jan
