Good Morning Sun, Good Morning Moon

Happy Moon Monday! As I mentioned in my last Moon Monday post, in the early morning hours of December 2nd, I noticed the moon (which had been full two nights before) was still visible above the trees. I was able to get outside and grab a few dozen shots, not only of La Luna, but of that daytime celestial body as well. Which is why I’m calling this, good morning Sun, good morning Moon! 😊

These aren’t filtered – I’ve just reduced the file size, and in some cases tweaked the exposure and/or sharpness a bit. The difference in the sky color comes from zooming in and out, and bumping the exposure up and down. And as almost always, these were taken with my Nikon affixed to my tripod), in my Durham New Hampshire yard.

Now on to the photos…

Good Morning Sun, Good Morning Moon

 
 

Good Morning Sun, Good Morning Moon
1. While I was happy you can see how bright the sun was reflecting on the trees, I really wasn’t able to do justice to how amazing this looked.

2. Nature’s spotlight

3. Peekaboo Moon!

4. Even a mere 48 hours (or so) after turning full, you can see she’s on the wane.

5. I took about a zillion variations of this shot, because it was so amazing to see.

6.When I turned to go back in the house, I realized it would be rude to ignore the other heavenly body making an early morning appearance.

7. Again, I couldn’t do justice to how dramatic the lighting was.

8. Although this one was a little closer to justice…

9. As was this one…

10. I dropped the exposure down a couple of stops before taking this one, and while the sky wasn’t actually that dark at the time, it’s my favorite of all the sun shots!

 
 

 
 

Happy Moon (and Sun) Monday!
