Skywatch Friday: Quarter Moon Over the Glade

Quarter Moon over Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. August 14, 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.

This week has brought clouds and some much-needed rain to the Glade.  But last Saturday evening the clouds parted enough to reveal a quarter moon.  I, of course, could not resist the temptation to grab my camera and try to capture the moon.

    Send us some rain…I don’t think we’ve had any for a month. I always love pictures of the moon but never try to take them.

    This is a wonderful capture George. I still have not figured out how to properly shoot the moon. 🙂
    Congrats on your rain!!!

    What a great pic Geprge. As I was running the other morning I couldn’t help but notice how pretty the sky looked. It was right before the sun was up. The stars were beautiful.

    This is a fabulous shot of the moon, George.
    I have a hard time capturing any half way decent night shots, so I will just enjoy yours and be happy you are so good at taking beautiful night shots.

    be Well, be Happy and have a wonderful weekend with you darling Sweetheart 😉

    you just taught me a valuable lesson. when I think sky I think blue sky and white clouds, or thunder clouds. this is most defintely a wonderful view of the sky.

  12. Mary Says:

    Nice quarter moon! Hope you are enjoying the nicer temps right now.

  13. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    Beautiful, and I love the dark leaves in the lower right corner! It’s just the little think the picture needs to set it off.

    great capture of the moon. i can never take a good shot of the moon – ever.

  15. Carletta Says:

    When I hear quarter moon I always want to see that song that says ‘quarter moon walking through the Milky way’. 🙂
    Nice shot!

  16. MaryBeth Says:

    So glad you got some much needed rain.
    Great moon shot too. MB

  17. Bloodhound Says:

    Nice shot. Moon shots are so difficult. Low light, camera shake etc. The full moon is not long to go now, I’ll be out there trying (again).

    George: Cool shot of the moon.

  19. Rose Says:

    This is an awesome shot, George!

  20. Sandra Says:

    I think I see the nose on this quarter moon, beautiful to behold. the moon not the nose. ha ha

    and what a wonderful capture it is!

  24. Karin Says:

    We’ve been under a blanket of smoke from the BC forest fires that we missed the moon – and the sun for that matter. It finally rained the other night and today the sun is trying to get through. I love your moon slice!!

  25. Kathy Ariano Says:

    On Friday and Saturday nights, in between downpours, we watched a beautiful moon shining down over the Gulf.
