Skywatch Friday: Moon Over the Glade

Moon Over Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 23, 2010.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Wednesday evening was clear here in the Glade, and just after sundown I spotted this nearly full moon up in the sky.  I couldn’t resist the temptation to get my telephoto lens and snap this picture  for Skywatch Friday.

    I can see the ‘Man in the Moon’. Neat shot. I took some too. I love taking moon shots. MB

    That’s why everyone has been slightly loonie around here this week! It’s a lovely picture George. Beautiful contrast of the solo moon in a clear sky! Good call to get the camera.

    As usual, you got another great sky and moon shot. At least with the moon, it gives you time to get ready for the picture. Most things I try to take move or gone before I get even my digital out.

    As I sat at my computer last night I glanced outside and could see the moon shining through the pergola on the deck. I didn’t have the energy to get my camera and go out.
    I regret that now. 🙂
    Excellent shot!
