Blue Moon by filsie65

Blue Moon

Blue Moon, you saw me stand here alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own....

This may be the nearest I get to joining in with the music theme! Taken with the help of my trusty telescope in bright clear skies, I upped the shadows a little and it became this lovely deeper blue. Covered in thick clouds soon after, it was such a welcome change to the torrential record-breaking rain.

Cathy and I were both chuffed with your lovely comments on yesterday's shot of her with the little pooches. She just loves those dogs, they seem to take it in turns to walk by her and by the time she gets back the lead is plaited!! You are all very kind, thank you. Have a great week :)
stunning details and blue tones! beautiful moon shot! fav

April 30th, 2012  
@helstor In theory... in fact once I took a shot of a bird of prey from way-away knowing the local bird-of-prey centre had lost one.... it was upside down of course which is odd, but the only reason it worked was because the bird was sat still on a perch for so long .....!
April 30th, 2012  
Excellent shot Phil - an immediate FAV! Always reminds me though of how long it is since the last astronaut stood on there. Talking of herons, I've been down to the river in Godmanchester this evening to see the water that you are sending our way :) Spotted a heron in a place I've seen it before. It's a crafty one - it knows that I can't get nearer when it's on the other side of the river!
