#043-365 Celestial Body

See it's TRUE the Moon is made of green cheese, and it has spilled out and taken over the surrounding space.

No really I was envious at all the wonderful Moon shots you lot were displaying so I went out to get a shot through the pena tree just off the road.

Through the Viewfinder it looked good but I suppose that using the night portrait setting with flash made for a longer exposure that I had supected, and all three shots that I took turned out like this (This gave the best definition of the moon) so other than cropping and adding the Signature anf frame and minimal light level enhancement it is as I first saw it. Was humming and ahhing whether to use this theme or oops, but decided that I would most likely come up with something more oopsy than this pretty moon shot.

(Reason for double post - trying to get ahead before trip)

The green cheese makes a good background that's a little different from the usual dark sky.

Why is your sky green?

It's a gorgeous shot Ron, I really love it but I'm shooting crescent moons and you're giving me a full moon.

I think it is a lovely shot and much better than any of my attempts! I'm probably going to have to photograph a "moon pie" in order to check this theme off! I love the green background and the detail on the moon's surface is very nice. Good job!

I liked your explanation of the green cheese better! I actually like this because it is different than what everyone else is putting out there! Are you sitting down? Nicely done! :)

That's so different with the green instead of blue/black! Nice details in the moon. Nice job!

huh..it took me a few times to see what this was..interesting effect shooting through the trees I guess that's where the green hue came from. I like your tale about how the moon is really cheese better

Hmmm... green cheese. Prefer the kind with the blue streaks myself.

Ron, I love the fill light the flash gave to the visible moon craters. Great shot.

You picked the right one to have as a favorite! I can't get that detail with my lens....maybe someday I will get a bigger one. I like the green!
