Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 35

Sky Watch Friday This is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link at 3:00 PM EDT on Thursdays. SWF is run by Klaus, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.

We have had a few clear nights and I made these Moon captures. Here is a moody photo of the Moon through the branches of a tree.
I also captured this Moon as it rose above the trees. Which one do you like best?

See a lot of great sky shots above.

I like them both for different reasons. Not sure I can pick a favorite because they are so different and have their own unique beauty. I also love your header. That's a truly amazing shot of the fish.

Thanks ...here, now ...it is time to dream!

Man, I love your header.

Your moon shots are wonderful also. I have to say that I like them both.

Denise said...

I enjoyed both these shots, the first for those branches adding a very neat artsy look to it, and the second for its traditional view of the moon. Two very cool photos!

I was reading before looking at the piccies and out of the corner of my eye could see the branches shot, I was confused untill I read the caption. Nice shots not sure if I like one more than the other but then I used to be indecisive but I am not so sure if I am anymore. Have a good week ,XXX Don

What a beautiful moon - but I love your header. Is it a smallmouth? We can catch them only in a few lakes here.

Hildred and Charles said...

Your moons are very beautiful, each in their own way. And your header is marvelous with its shine and shimmer.

While the first one's very creative! I'm also hoping to click a shot like your second shot! It's terrific!

Mary said...

Both have merit for different reasons...arty or scientific :-) Is that sort of like "left brain and right brain"?
