Beautiful! We were up in the small hours too and took some similar shots - it always makes me think I should always get up early . . .

The second shot is amazing...
With this now being 30 years since Neil Armstrong's trip to the moon...
ooops: 1969 I remember it, i was in my very late teens....:-/

I love the last one! All dark and then the light from the moon contrasting it.

The first one is a little erie... can almost hear the howl in the background!

Great shots!

jabblog-having a puppy who gets up early provides lots of photo ops

Anne-Keep trying.

Aileni-Thanks. Words are inadequate.

Anna-Thanks. You too.

RunE-Thanks for the internal rhyme.

James-Thanks. Yes, B&W seemed a good fit.

prettyfirefly-I use a Nikon D90. For these shots I used a Sigma 150-500mm telephoto lens.

Dina-I was a teenager when Armstrong walked on the moon. 30 yrs., 40 yrs.--it's all the same.

Dagrun-Thanks. For the second pic I processed to accentuate the contrast. The sky was bluer than that, as seen in the first photo.

Summer Kitchen Girls-I'm sprouting hair in new places. Is it because I'm becoming a senior citizen, or because of the moon?

I really enjoyed the last one, nice in b&w

Very nice capture. You must have one of those high zoom cameras. Awesome shot!

Daryl said...

Nice capture!

Very dramatic photographs. The moon is a perfect subject for monochromatic photographs.

Wishing you a scent-sational day!

A difficult shot unless you have a really big lens, which most of us mere mortals don't. Nicely done.

Totally excellent. I have never taken a good moon shot.
