Peek-a-Boo Harvest Moon by olivetreeann

Peek-a-Boo Harvest Moon

I ventured out on the deck last night (not too far- still a bit wobbly!) to get a shot of the Harvest Moon but since I can't go up and down the stairs I was limited to what I could capture because the poor camera couldn't decide whether I was photographing the tree's silhouette or the moon itself. So, here you have a composite of the two- but I really like the result!

#12 on the Top Twenty list of week 522!
This is so great. It’s awesome on black!

Love how those leaves are making such a neat pattern against the moon.

awesome composite, ann. and here i was thinking i should ask if you're going to batavia sometime mid-october and i forgot you just had a procedure. oh, well. i haven't been to niagara in more than a year and there's a $69/night promotion with wine tour included so i signed up. i'm hoping to shoot the sunrise over the falls (if i don't get too drunk! 😂). guess i'm going solo.

So. I normally get very tired of the "center the full moon" images. This one, however, is a unique and clever take. Well done!!

Thank you SOOOO much for all those views, comments and favs! I was pleased with the combo and so glad you felt the same. As it is true to the season here- the moon gets crisper and brighter during harvest time so this is one full moon I always enjoy capturing.

@aikiuser Most of the time I prefer putting it slightly off center for similar reasons. A photographer who recently spoke at our photo club on line expressed the same thoughts as yours. One of the things she includes in her moon shots to avoid that is often a silhouette in the foreground and when the camera kept focusing on the leaves in stead of the moon I thought, "This might work to my favor" and voila!

Can’t keep a photographer down for long. I think this has a ver Halloween type of mystery.
