The moon today:

at every gate
a celebration...

You always post the best moon shots !
You diffidently get up very early the morning.
I am interested to know what time were you at Sabino to see the Badgers. Son is a huge fan of Badgers and would love to see them if possible.

cheers, parsnip

This is a wonderful series! My daughter was behind me as I scrolled down the photos and she kept saying, "That's my favorite." And the haiku is perfect.

Hi Parsnip, I saw the badgers around 6:00am.

A swimmingly fabulous Moon!

The desert moon has been lovely, hasn't it? Do you think other parts of the country see what we see?

Diane AZ said...

Great question Brenda, it seems the image they see is similar but rotated.

Warren said...

great shots! I really like the 7th one from the top of the moon passing "through" the cloud layer, nice!

Darla said...

These are beautiful! I could kick myself for not attempting photos of the recent blue moon.

Hi there - I had a great walk home from work looking at a moon like this! Of course it was about the only day in the last two years where I forgot my camera!

Great pictures.

Beautiful shots Diane. I saw it last night? or was it the night before? I tried to take pics but nothing turned out:( But I still enjoyed the views. Love how the clouds play with the line of sight and lighting:)

Stiletto said...

Fantastic shots. You are superb photographer. I'm inspired to take similiar shots.

Isn't the sky an edless source of surprises? It changes so quickly. The smallest change in the air can make the biggest difference from almost moment to moment.
