Hi from Sacramento... thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. I love the simplicity of your photo. I can't quite describe the way in which the moon draws you into the sky. Awesome.

I took this picture just a day or so before you...mine just a bit less full.

Like I always say, there is no such thank as a bad Moon! Only I don't know the technical names.

I'm envious that your skies are so clear. Our skies have been mostly overcast lately.

Moon shots are my fave! How much zoom did you use? Excellent shot!

Tink, the zoom was at 200 (maximum). Thanks! I was surprised at the detail it captured in the moon.

Moon shots are amazing, and so hard to capture. You've done it nicely. :)

Thanks so much for playing along,
