Best laid plans, eh? For today’s Moon Monday, I’d planned to do some shots of the moon during the daytime hours, since I’ve done a number of full (or close to) moon posts in recent weeks. I knew for sure I had a bunch somewhere in my folders, because I remember taking them not too long ago and thinking it was worth braving the cold to get some different moon photos for a change of pace. I spent a great deal of time looking for them, but after I found these shots of the Full Thunder Moon from July 9th, 2017 in my “Still Unedited” folder, I decided to go with these for now, which probably means I’ll find the other pictures a few minutes after I hit, “publish.” 😜
I checked just in case, and found that I did have three shots of that particular full moon as part of my then-weekly Foto Friday post, however I don’t see these particular shots there, or anywhere else back then. I still have a dozen or so to go through for a possible future post, but I’m sticking with these seven for today.
My usual spiel before I get to the pictures – I’ve reduced the file size, and in some cases tweaked the exposure and/or sharpness a bit, but I haven’t filtered most of these, other than the instances where I mention I’ve dome some extra work to them. For the most part, the difference in the color of the moon (and sometimes the clouds around it) comes from zooming in and out, and bumping the exposure up and down, not from tinting it. It still amazes (and frustrates…lol) me that what I see in the sky isn’t always what turns up on my camera. These were taken with my my Nikon affixed to my tripod), in my Durham New Hampshire yard.
Okay, now on to the photos!
