Sky Watch Friday...


I don't think I need to explain Sky Watch Friday or why it is on Thursday to my usual viewers this week. After doing it the last two weeks I think you all get the gist. To do sky watch requires a little work for me, I need to look back through my older files or go out and shoot some sky to be able to post. Because of that I find myself looking up more often than in the past.

This photograph was taken last Friday in Elk County Pennsylvania. We were still exploring the area for the next couple of days so I had hiked back an area looking for wildlife, it was getting dark so the chances for shooting were winding down. I had spotted some whitetail deer and was preparing to photograph them when they must have caught some movement out of me. Next thing I know they let out a loud snort, the tails flash up in the air and all I can see now are back ends as they run away. Since the Nikon was already set up on the tripod with the big lens attached I figured why not photograph the moon and see how it looks. I was pleased enough with "Moon over Winslow Hill" that it is today's post.

Nice moon shot Brad.

I think there is an eclipse of the moon supposed to be happening some time this month.

That might be a cool shot, although I have never photographed an eclipse before so who knows.

This is such a clear image, Brad. You must have wonderful equipment. I have read the list down the LHS and am very envious.

Excellent job!

I like the turkeys below - I photo them most everyday in my yard. I've been feeding them corn under the bird feeder. :)
