One day short...

Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 5 August 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

...of the full moon, taken July 25, 2010. It took a while before the moon rose above the clouds, so it wasn't as close to the treetops as I had hoped. This month I'll get another chance.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/30 second F/6.3 ISO 400 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Wonderful exposure to capture the detail on the surface and I like it hiding a bit behind the clouds! Great shot!

@Scott F. Schilling: I'm leaning that many moon shots can be cloned in, so capturing behind that leading cloud was a bit of 'proof' that it was a real shot. :D

@Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, USA: You've been on the run ... and for me, it's simply been to HOT to sit out there and out-wait them. Mike was willing to do it for me, and I'm thankful!

A beautiful take, Judy! The huge round bulb is ON !
