Almost Wordless Wednesday - Full Moon Rising

About a week ago, I became fascinated with capturing photos of the full moon as it rose over the ridge to our east. It turned out that I made some rookie mistakes that I hope to fix next month but I thought I'd still share the photos that I captured.
Half of the moon above the ridge

Moon was almost above the ridge
To get those photos, I had to hike up to a ridge in the dark. My trusty dog friend accompanied me. I hoped that she'd let me know if any dangerous critters were nearby. Thank you, Shyla!


  1. I always admire shots of the moon or night skies. I have never accomplished anything like this! Glorious! Shyla the bodyguard - I'd recognize her anywhere...

  2. Gorgeous!!! Spectacular!!! But do be careful out in the dark:)

  3. um, excuse me, but what were your rookie mistakes? these are gorgeous!

  4. Shyla is so cute in her sunglasses!!! I love it!

    The pictures of the moon are so beautiful! <3

  5. i like your assistant. :) nice shots w/ the pines 'holding' the moon!

  6. As Wild Dingo said above " rookie mistakes"? Well I can't wait to see the
    what you capture next month.
    Shyla rocking the shades could be a magazine ad or some other endorsement.
    Way beyond cute and eye catching.
    Be careful out there in the dark!

  23. This rookie can't see any rookie mistakes - those are awesome shots! Last time I tried taking shots of the moon, my camera fell off my tripod onto the concrete patio and I broke my only really good lens! Now THAT'S a rookie mistake! :(

  24. Your photos are as beautiful and amazing as anything I've seen in a book! Wow!!!

  25. Those are fabulous moon shots! Thank you both for that night time hike. I love a full moon hike!

  26. I don't see any mistakes in those photos...rookie or not! And, Shyla girl, you rock those shades!

  27. Hi KB, What a brave soul you are to hike up to the ridge during the night. I love your photos and don't care if you say they are rookie or not-I think they are great.
    Hope you are having a great morning. I imagine you've hit the trail and back home again.
    Have a perfect weekend-it is supposed to be so nice and warm.
    Hugs, Noreen
