you are such an artist. the camera is your friend. much more so than that printer.

Laurie said...

Jen, thank you, that is very sweet of you to say.

And for the record, I am SO over the printer. *sniff*. ;-)

Mary said...

Cool. Looks eerie. I like it.

Cool moon photo Laurie! I have a similar shot from the other night!

Squirl said...

That's gorgeous. All of my moon pictures look like a little speck of white against a black cloth.

Laurie said...

Mary, I'm glad you like it! That is the sight that greeted me as I left our annual banquet last night. I was so tired I figured that nothing I could write about it would make sense (of course that wouldn't be a first on my blog) so I just posted the picture.

Naturewoman, you take wonderful photos! I look forward to reading your blog every day.

Squirl, I used my 300 mm lens and leaned against a car because the ones where I tried it "freehand" looked like time-lapsed photography. ;-)

There's a restaurant near me called Bella Luna. I forget it actually means something!

Neat-O!

Laurie said...

Rhea, thanks for stopping by. How's the food there?

Butterfly, glad you like! :)

Gina said...

Very nice! I especially like the "halo" around it.

Terrific shot. I have yet to take a decent moon picture.

Laurie said...

Gina, thanks, I'm glad you like it.

AC, you take great pictures! I just got lucky on this one.

Laurie - I tried to photograph this same moon a few nights ago in Arizona and failed completely. This shot is so moody - so beautiful. Was it foggy there? Did you take a timed exposure? (How was the banquet?)

Laurie said...

Cathy, I'm so glad you like it. I took it with the new Rebel. I did it in night portrait mode which is somewhat like timed exposure. There was a bit of a moon doggy effect and that tree was just too good to pass up.

The banquet was great. I posted some stuff on my work website today. You can see it here if you are interested.

Pam's artwork was a real hit with the guests.
