Capturing the moon

“Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.”

The moon was incredibly beautiful tonight so I tried to take a photo; however, my camera is not that adept at taking certain shots. Or perhaps it's the photographer who's to blame. I shouldn't blame my tools! But this was my attempt, so if you can just imagine that large yellow moon amongst a dark sky that's sparkling with stars then you'll know why I was impressed.


  1. Well, moon shots are very difficult to take. First the object is far away, and secondly the light. But still, this is a very nice shot. The moon looks mysterious or seems like it's a dark night (in terms of city dwellers)

  2. Yes they are rather difficult because I took a series of shots and they all came out the same! There wasn't too much light pollution though it was a really striking shade of yellow.

  3. Love the quote

  4. Hehe I've had this blog for a few years. In fact we used to have blogger Christmas meets for the Blogristi :) but then everyone started dwindling in posts, myself included, and now I've decide to revive it to inspire my writing again :)
