The solar eclipse we had recently felt very powerful to me. I feel like it was trying to relay with it’s energy for us to pay attention. It seems like the eclipse started a wave of natural disasters and other things happening that we should take a serious look at. I think we are needing to take a look at our humanity, the way we treat others and our earth. I don’t think there’s any question that our earth is angry right now, but many of us are not paying attention. It’s time….
Ok, so everyone is doing it!!! I had to too!!! How could I let the Super Moon pass me by without getting a photo! I have photographed the moon before several times, but it’s always a challenge. Here it it, from in between cloud cover. May take another one later when the moon is more “white”.
I was in Wyoming a couple of weeks ago, with a gorgeous full moon. The view was breathtaking, and there was no way I could capture it in a photo, but I tried. Also my attempt at a star trail shot (not a very good one!)
Here’s a few of my night shots.

I always find challenging photos the most fun. It’s almost like, I want to see if I can get it. I love photographing the moon, and there were plenty of clouds so I had to wait till there was a break. I amazingly only took 20 photos to get this one (the clouds were moving fast!). I don’t know if I could have gotten any more detail in the moon without loosing the clouds. I am pretty happy with it.
Well, I started my Daily Photo Blog at the beginning of 2010, hoping that I learn more about photography, learn my camera and I think I have done that. I do notice an improvement from the beginning of the year, and now when I want to take a specific photograph, technically- I kinda know what I am doing! 🙂
I wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I hope you all set goals and reach them (even surpass them!). I set some goals each year and I try really hard to accomplish them. Sometimes I feel that just by having some of my goals on my blog, or on Facebook, it helps me, because I feel like “I told the world, so now I have to do it!”
Here are my top 10, as chosen by friends, family, comments, views & myself:
Well, I am ready for the eclipse tonight. I went out to get a few test shots, got my tripod set up, now if I can only wake up in the middle of the night! I got this shot of the moon behind the tree. Love it! It looks spooky.
I went on a photo walk last night organized by Austin photographer Alex Suarez (thanks Alex!). There really didn’t seem to be much as far as Christmas lights, but I managed to find some things to photograph. By the way, what’s up with no Christmas lights over Congress Avenue, Austin??
Here are my favorite photos from last night. The first 3 are a window display and the last is the Austonian building with the clouds and moon. It looked awesome!
Here’s my “Wolf” Moon! Full moon 1/29/10, the biggest brightest of the year (that’s what they say!). It took me a few tries before I figured out the exposure for it! I almost gave up, but looking at my previous shots on the computer told me what I needed to do. It’s all about learning, isn’t it!! 🙂
I had a tough time choosing today’s photo. We walked downtown to go eat for my husband’s birthday, and of course I took my camera! I took several shots on the way there and back. I think I will post 2 of them.
