Nor The Moon By Night ........




Trying to capture a beautiful big silver moon
as it rose over the main lake at Mawson Lakes

Just as I set up my tri-pod the dark clouds came rolling in
if only I'd been a few minutes earlier!!

You still captures some wonderful night shots Dianne "sans" moon.

Carole M. said...

a lovely shot still Dianne but I know having set up your tripod especially for that big moon, it would've been a tad dissapointing. Never mind, I hope you found a nice cozy cafe' for a cappuccino after

Still beautiful photos. I missed the moon altogether. Looked outside and all I could see was clouds. Hmpf!

Andrew said...

I am moon overloaded. It is nice to see a glimpse of it.

Craig said...

I agree with Andrew.. I think it is enhanced by only having a glimpse of it. Beautiful!

They are still stunning night scenes with just that hint of moonlight.

Gary said...

Still a fine shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Beautiful photo capture of the lights in the water but very frustrating to miss the full moon.

Pretty sky and a lovely capture of the lights reflecting on the water. Just gorgeous! Have a happy week!

NatureFootstep said...

well, that´s pretty normal, isn´t it? You still got a great shot though.

Valerie said...

That is a beautiful capture Dianne - the dark clouds add some mystique!

sylvia kirkwood said...

Oh, yes!! They are definitely terrific captures, Dianne! I love the clouds and the moon peeking out as well as the wonderful reflections on the water!!

The cloudy sky has a certain mood to it. This is a beautiful capture - I love the panoramic view!

Using the tripod - wow, what a dedication:) I mostly slide by with grabbing the camera...

Al said...

The clouds made for a different, atmospheric shot, but still a beautiful one.

Stephanie said...

ooh I like the starburst light.

ladyfi said...

The shots are lovely! Shame about the moon though. It was too cloudy here for shots too.

Jill Harrison said...

Have a wonderful week.

The very same thing happened to me Dianne, difference being that you got a gorgeous image here, me not so lucky :)

diane b said...

That must have been annoying.However, the photo is very nice anyway.

Dana said...

Gorgeous! I love the reflections.

Jim said...

Terrific.

Chel C said...

Still beautiful but don't you just hate it when that happens. I usually set something up and someone will then stand in front of me! Chel :-)
