“THE” shot of the morning moon! (WPC – Experimental)

It can be a little hit and miss when taking a photo of the moon at the best of times.

Then, when you’ve only just woken to see there’s only a matter of moments before the moon drops below the horizon with no time to adjust camera settings, well then, it’s all very experimental as to what the result will actually be!

This was our Harvest Moon earlier this month. It. Was. GLORIOUS! Not that you can really tell though from this capture 🤣, but I do still like the silhouette of the trees in front of the moon even if it is a little out of focus.

Experimental is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Nature… ain’t she glorious?!

My word for last year was acceptance. Now, don’t for one moment think it meant accepting whatever rubbish was given to me, quite the contrary in fact.

It meant accepting my own limitations and requesting assistance when required; speaking up to NOT accept haphazardness in others; and to accept defeat gracefully and move on! The Super Moon last year being a prime example of the latter.

No matter what I changed my camera setting too or at what hour I attempted photograph that moon, there was simply no way on earth I could not capture the grandeur like so many other photographers were. I accepted defeat. The Super Moon and I were not meant to be. Until this…

Having dropped the children at school, I was making my way home carefully on the roads as once again we were being blanketed in an Arctic Outflow. Everything it touched seem to immediately turn to ice, including the roads. Hence I was driving like a tortoise.

That was until I began driving up a hill and there, sitting on top of this hill was the Super Moon in all her glory. Challenge Accepted. There was enough time for me to get home safely, out onto my deck with camera in hand and voila, one last VERY successful happy snap. {sigh} Isn’t nature glorious?

NATURE is this week’s word for the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 22 from The Girl That Dreams Awake.
