Wiring the moon

Telegraph wires, laden with snow, cross the twilight sky.

Now, the moon peeks boldly through

Leading the eye to a rainbow moonscape of snow.

What you see in life all depends on your perspective.

  1. Oh, absolutely gorgeous shots of the moon…The silver disc holds my out most fascination and I can look at it for hours at end.
    Recently it has been lying down, as a thin crescent, hiding in the earth shadow – and as the nights grow lighter, its dark outline surrounded by star is ever so intriguing.
    Just out of curiosity – I posted some images of the sun today instead, how amusing.;)

  2. “What you see in life all depends on your perspective” — SO so true! Too often we only see the one thing we don´t like, but forget about our surroundings!
    Beautiful shots!

  4. Migas are totally vegetarian. Eggs, cheese (you could leave this off), beans, peppers, chilies, salsa, pico de gallo (chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes.) And since I don’t fry the corn tortillas or chips or saute them in butter, they’re healthy too! (I broil them!)

    That is a fabulous moon shot and I’ve tried myself to take a moon shot many thousands of times and it’s not an easy shot to get, so congrats on that! Very cool angle through the wires also!!

  14. Lovely rural scene in the third one. The moon is always fascinating, but how do you set your camera to get both the distant moon and the foreground into focus? How deep can you make your depth of field? Talking about settings; I have made the same mistake of forgetting the ISO on high. They turned out very similar to your picture with your dog and the reeds. It looks very arty and beautiful, but then again, you get those rounded corners of the image.
