Thanks, Gabriela. Did you see the moon this morning? I couldn’t get Venus with the moon this morning with the telephoto lens. Venus was too high by the time the moon came over the mountains.
I got up early enough and saw them. It was beautiful.
You have to take pictures, Timothy. Everyone is counting on you; including the kitties.
Very nice shots, especially the first. (BTW the 14th is Sher’s B’day.)
Thanks. Happy Birthday Sher. My mom’s birthday is today, the 15th. Mine is near the end of the month.
Exquisite in all the right ways, Timothy.
Thanks Jordan. Moonshots and sunsets. They never get boring.
You’re welcome, Timothy. That’s one mode of photography that I haven’t been able to get anything except in blurry images. I see this majestic… take the shot in “focus.” Nope, is what I get. Bright fuzz. Thanks for sharing these. Gives me my fix for what haven’t yet been able to make.
You need manual settings to not get too much white or a blurry mess. The moon has to be exposed as daylight against a dark plane. It gets a little tricky, and definitely taxes auto-exposure.
Oh, that makes ALL kinds of sense. Thank you, Timothy. My Olympus is about to thank you as well.
I love when we can see the whole moon behind the sliver!
I think it’s Lavinia who calls it a “moon eye” when you can see the outline of the moon with the sliver. Thanks, Dale.
Too bad it’s raining here… I would have checked out what we can see.
Those darn clouds. We have mostly clear skies, but we have had cloud cover for many celestial events I wanted to photogrph. Go figure.
Clouds are one thing… That rain is heavy!
It’s always the case. You plan, you prepare, Mother Nature gives you the finger. You’re our and about and the perfect image appears and all you have is your phone (which is amazing but not the same thing)!
Motha Naycha has a way of flipping us the bird. I used to always have a good camera on me. Lately, I’ve been using the phone. But there are times it would be nice to have the pro cam for the shot.
I heah ya… Mind you, my phone takes fabulous pictures. Sometimes I chose to forego lugging around the camera bag.
No lug camera. No phone photos.
No phone photos? But why?
I meant phone. No lug phone. No phone photos. My bad.
LOL! Clear as mud, Tim… 😉
And can be fun… but that’s a whole ‘nother blog post 😉
I played mud volleyball years ago. Have you every mud wrestled?
Oh wow… That must be so hard on the legs… and no… can’t say that I have!
It’s definitely hard on the knees.
Mine are already shot from figure skating, track and field, volleyball…
My knees were shot from a rare disease when I was 8. I didn’t play sports. I started riding motorcycles and barely survived.
So sorry to hear that. But you are here so, there is that. Motorcycles – a whole other story…
Spectacular phase of the moon. The sky is so perfectly clear , wonderful shots.
Thanks, Holly. The sky is clear, except for a little smoke still hanging around.
Still? Oh gosh, shoo it away!
It would be nice to have a no smoke incantation. Another problem is there’s an arsonist who has been setting fires in the bosque. Walkers have reported the fires and they FD has been able to extinguish the fires before they got big, be we still get a lot of smoke from those little fires.
People are nuts and sociopaths. Maybe some kids? I hope they find out and are able to stop this before it gets out of hand.
There’s lots of weirdness these days. Someone butchered a horse out here a few months ago. Probably as revenge. A bosque watch person I was talking to the other night said there was an attempt on another horses life a few nights ago. Psychos abound.
God, that’s just awful. I hope that stuff stops right now.
It’s horrible and incomprehensible.
I know. Tears!
If you’re seeing a bright red in the evening sky, that will be Mars. It is making its closest approach which is making it brighter than usual.
I see Mars around 9:00 to 10:00 pm, and then early in the morning low to the SW. Thanks, David
Ahhhh…. look at that moon!!!!!!! Sea men over here say: “lying moon = captain on his feet / moon up straight = captain sleeps” loosely translated! Means that when the moon is smiling, so to speak, bad weather is coming. At least to old sea men! 😉 Beautiful photos, my friend!
The old seafarers had lots of good sayings. You have to respect the weather when you are out to sea. Thanks, Marina.
Oh, yes!!!!! 😉
This morning, Timothy, I tried to get a decent shot of a planet, I even tried the Kodak and Nikon, but no chance. Makes me so envious seeing these great shots. Hehe! Well done!
I saw that the other morning and thought it very cool and then night before last I saw Mars in the sky.
Mars is especially bright. I see Mars rising at bedtime and then it’s setting when I get up. Thanks, Teri.
Special and beautiful !!!
One of my favorite subjects! Beautiful photos, Tim. I checked the calendar, new moon (no moon) is tonight. We should start seeing the sliver moon again in the west after that.
Thanks, Lavinia. New moon this morning. There was no moon to be seen in the wee hours. Only Venus shining brightly in the eastern Sky.
i love moon slivers like silver dollars
This moon series was a true joy, Timothy. I have been getting up in the dark morning going to the window as if fireworks were awaiting me, so spectacular the morning sky has been this week. That you photographed down near the Rio Grande, what I marveled over up here in Northern Calif., is very cool. This morning there was no moon, only Venus, being new. What a delight!
Thanks, Jet. Morning skies are magical. We can see stars pretty well at night, but we get a lot of light pollution from Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. I couldn’t see the Neowise comet without binoculars because of the light pollution, but when I pointed my camera where I saw the comet through binoculars I was able to photograph it. Jupiter, Saturn and Mars have been really visible before bedtime, and Venus and the moon early in the morning. The moon was hiding out this morning. I see Mars in the east when I go to bed and then in the west when I leave for work.
Simply lovely, I wish all of life was so!
I think most of us do. Thanks, Tiffany.
Very cool, Tim!
I haven’t seen the moon in Toronto for a very long time. It’s almost always overcast at night.
Moonless in Toronto. That’s a good title for something. Thanks, Resa.
Lol! Write a song!
OK. But you will have to sing it.
Okay… working on the recording thing.
I did the interview for the podcast. I’ll get to hear my speaking voice very soon!
I think we can come up with something good.
