One more, two minutes later ... and then the clouds took over for a while. I went back to making dinner ...

Great shot Jub. The moon has been really pretty the past few nights. Those point and shoots can take pretty good shots!

Mysore, India(Zone 10a)

Well done Jubi, on two counts: one, for starting this new thread as a continuation and two, nice pictures to start!

I took a long shot last evening. This evening I was lazy.

Nice shots I saw the moon last night too. and thought, that's time gone quick.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Gorgeous moon shots all. I saw it last night on my way home. Should have stopped and taken a shot. Maybe tonight for an almost full moon.

Morpeth, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

Yesterday morning I caught the setting moon on my way to work. The orange tint may have been a reflection of the sunrise.

kniphofia,
So early to work? Nice shot.
Jubilada,
I missed the moonrise two days ago. Saw it when it was way up.

Morpeth, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

Yes I start work at 7 am. Suits my sleep pattern as I'm always up around 4!

Here's another shot I took the following morning.

Already waxed a bit, kniphofia. So you must be early to bed too, since you get up at the wonderful hour of four.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

kniphofia great moon shots, the orange tinted is really a nice shot.

Ooooh, bootandall, that's simply smashing! Lovely shot!

Palo Alto, CA(Zone 9a)

This is the best I could get on March 15, about 6:30 p.m. That noise is really haze, the ISO was only 400. It's only been hazy or overcast in the evenings lately.

I like that misty look too

Some moon shots from the April full moon while we were camping off the Halifax river at Tomoka park in Ormond Beach

The first photo had my headlights on the road, I turned them off and took another shot, but liked the one with the headlights better. ☺
The Halifax river and the multitude of condos along the beach front, the last two with a palm tree silhouette.

Good sunkissed moonshots!!! Got it?

Palo Alto, CA(Zone 9a)

Nice moonshots, sunkissed. I like both the headlights on and headlights off ... each presents a different feeling. Number 4 is quite intriguing! Nice moon and silhouette!

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

Glad you enjoyed the photos because my feet itched all night from no-see-um bites while taking them out on that sandbar. ☺

Yes Dinu, think I've got it...at least getting there.

Morpeth, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

I went out to hang my laundry at 4.20 or so this morning (I know, saddo) and was delighted to see this fabulous moon!

How Nice! Very clear shot. We were driving home last night from some friends and I watched that big ole Moon all the way home, it was so pretty.

Mysore, India(Zone 10a)

Nice one knip. Moonlight was fabulous too. Here, not a clear night, but clouds passing.

Hello all,

I came across this thread and thought I'd post a couple of mine. I am not sure if it is Aristarchus Crater or not, known for it's blue tint, but the one approximately in the 9 o'clock position seems blue to me. Enjoy.

Good shot Patti. I tried to take a wild shot the day before, despite being cloudy. It was cloudy at moonrise time.

http://earthsky.org/space/see-the-supermoon-awesome-photos-of-the-june-2013-full-moon A link from EarthSky - a few images from around the world.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Dinu, You got it! I like how it looks with the natural black vignette all around the moon. Very cool! Thanks for posting all of the images. That will give me some ideas for next time I photograph the full moon.

Here are a couple more. I overexposed the moon, but I still like them okay. We had clouds too. It was going in and out of the clouds.

Dinu, very nice "moody" moon shot! And thanks for that link to EarthSky!

Patty, I really like number one in your second set. Gorgeous! Has a kind of "golden" magical, mystical feel!

Don't miss the set here on big picture.

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Awesome photos in incredible places! Thanks for link, Dinu.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

Oh Patti your moon shots are just fantastic. I especially like the first one you posted with the lily pads on the water.
We were on Sanibel Island camping during the supermoon and I looked so forward to getting some moon shots...but unfortunately we had thunderstorm almost every single night and the clouds remained long enough to block out the moon.

Dinu those are great photos of the moon. Thanks for sharing them.

I did get this shot with my point and shoot camera on 6-21, the first day of summer, down on the beach.

A couple of friends commented on my fb wall where I also posted it. They were saying that the moon can be made to appear very large with a long telephoto lens.

The moon this morning in Palo Alto, around 9 a.m.
