Photohunters: Mostly Black


I was stumped by this theme until I started thinking about moon shots I've taken over the years.

The first shot probably qualifies better than any of them for mostly black but I thought I'd use a variety of moon shots for this theme.

The next shot isn't a great moon shot but I liked the way it's shining through the trees and the roof below is covered in snow.

There are wispy clouds over part of the moon in the shot below.

The next shot was actually taken during the day and the sky was blue but I converted it to black and white for the mostly black theme.

The next shot was taken in the early evening.

What great pics, CarverFriend! As you know my sister and I were born in Michigan and now reside in Florida. I will say that the snow is fun if one is inclined to play. The booties that our Kim made us wear; well let's just say that they were unacceptable for any dignified Beagle. It does get quite warm here in Orlanda, but I believe those booties have long been gone.
I remain a very Good Dog.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

What a lovely, gentle series of pictures. In the summertime, I love to sit high up on the railing of my front deck and moon gaze.

To me, one of the hardest things to shoot is the moon. These are great!
