Moonlit Haze


As you've probably guessed, I have a fascination with the Moon. Late last night the view out of my front window made me run for my camera and try to photograph the sight using the telephoto. So far I haven't had much luck using this particular feature but I did manage to capture the scene. It was hazy last night with the last full Moon on the wane. I've jokingly referred to these type of nights as 'Jack The Ripper Nights'...eerily beautiful with a sense of the dangerous. The Moon appeared as a hazy 'ball' glowing through the still bare trees across the drive. All that was missing was the silhouette of an owl perched on a branch. A cat would've been even better.

That is a beautful photograph Billie! You can always add the cat in one of your cat paintings.

Glad you ran for the camera, and shared the view with all of us.

Perfectly captured. Now this would make a fabulous charcoal drawing.

You're right, Jeanette...this would look great in charcoal.

Nice picture Billie, your also a good photographer. Maybe you should paint this and put and out line of a cat setting on the branch right above the moon.

That thought has occurred to me, Mike. Maybe for my next fantasy cat?
