Moon in a blue sky above the red leaves of a tree at Lake Canterbury, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 5, 2011.

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.

Last Saturday Betsy and I were out enjoying the autumn colors at Lake Canterbury here in the Glade when Betsy pointed out the moon in the blue afternoon sky.  I managed to get this picture of the moon above some of the red leaves of a tree near the lake.

By the time we got home and I got my tripod out the sky was black, but I still managed to get this picture of the moon over Fairfield Glade.

    I love the beautiful deep red frame for the moon! And the last shot is very cool, the moon has lots of definition and contrast. Last night was a full moon, did you see it? I missed it, but it should be just as pretty tonight!

    Very pretty that first shot…what lovely lighting. The second shot is amazing. Wow! Well done George. Do you know that I still don’t have a tripod…LOL!

  15. diane Says:

    That is neat. I can never get the camera to focus. I guess one needs to do it manually.

    The Moon looks magnificent by day AND night – but the detail in the 2nd shot against the dark sky is superb!
