Why, hello Mr. Man in the Moon!

For those of you that may have missed it because of cloud cover or just because you weren't in the loop, My son & I took some great pictures of the "Supermoon" event from this past Saturday
Isn't it so big & beautiful?

 My son & I are fascinated with celestial events like this
{I really need to get that kid a high power telescope}
As you can see, he was all about it!! i-pad out & all!
 we were out there for quite a bit just watching the moon do his thing!
the darker it got right at dusk the more orange the moon got!
 I am SO PROUD of this picture!
I have waited for so long & have taken I don't know how many pictures trying to get a shot of 
the moon like this.
Maybe it was because it appeared so close to the earth that helped me out. . . whatever it was, 
I am so grateful! because I LOVE this picture!
You can see the face.....Hi Mr. Man in the Moon!!!!
 this one is slightly more clear & a little more orange
 The higher in the sky it got the less orange it got. . . but man, it was SUPER bright~
{hence the "supermoon"}
 It was so bright it lit up the tree in my front yard & made this fantastic shot
It really was a super moon & I am glad I got to see it & take great pictures but most of all I am glad I got to share the moment with my son who now says he WILL go to the moon one day!
Dream to the moon little man! Dream to the "Supermoon"

~Happy Creating

  1. Yor shots of the moon turned out soooo good!!!

    1. Thank you so much Roxanne!!! I am very proud of them!

  2. What great shots of the supermoon. I took some as well, which you can see here ( It's funny but it seems like most people had cloud cover so I haven't seen too many other shots of the moon. Yours seemed really orange - more than ours did. Your moon shot is so clear. Did you use a tripod? I'm so glad you had fun with your son watching the moon. My husband and two of our kids went over to the local park to watch the moon rise - what fun.

    1. Hi Grace! I will be sure to stop by your blog right now! I did NOT use a tripod for my shots....surprisingly enough! Lots of practice & holding my breath :D
      It was great fun....I cant wait for summer evenings sitting outside stargazing!
      Thanks for stopping by
