SkyWatch Friday: Moonshot



 My husband called me from work one day, to ask me if I had seen the moon in the middle of the day.  I ran outside with the camera...

To see some wonderful skies from all over the world, please visit Skywatch Friday.

Minimalism certainly has its charm. Nice to meditate with, in case one would have time to do that ;-)

I did see one last weekend too. They are magical when spotted in the middle of the day, what a surprise.

great capture! I always find it sort of strange to see the moon out like that in the middle of the day.

I like that he called you from work just to tell you that.

Simple. Beautiful.

I always love it when you can see the moon during daytime, Mary. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure why that happens some of the time and not all of the time on sunny days???

Sandie said...

Ditto to all the other comments. I especially think the adjectives: Elegant, simple, beautiful and fantastic sum it up.

Louise said...

Wonderful moon shot. I love the moon and never tire of seeing pictures of it. The deep blue sky surrounding this one makes it extra wonderful.
