Full moon of the month

I missed taking her at moon rise on the full moon night because the forecast said that the evening would have been cloudy and I did not bring my camera when I left house in the morning.  The forecast ended not correct that the beautiful full moon rose and I admired her beauty at the house as cooking dinner.

I got this chance next day at dawn.  The moon was already set on the west of the skies but was still there clearly.  Her beaming light could not be missed!


I think I have missed photographing full moon number of times (months?) this year.  Sky condition was main reason of why, but I was not be able to make chances for doing it either (I would like to photograph just after the moon rise).

With the hope I will get some shots for 2 more full moons to come for 2018….

Full Moon of the month

Captured last night.  Sydney weather was not that good yesterday so I wasn’t expecting her appeared in the evening.  Photographing moon is another challenge for me always.  I eventually did about 90 clicks and turned out five kept at the end.  The below are top 2.  I like the first one particularly just because of the hazy moonlight glow.

Oh my naughty Bleu made a posture looking up, as if he was going to be howling toward the moon.  😉

He will be turning to age of thirteen this weekend.  He had been suffering from eczema which likely came from allergy and he had to wear the collar for months.  So I  completely stop feeding him the food which contained chicken (including all chicken products and bi-products) then he finally was released from the collar.

Bleu, mummy is very happy for you having your birthday with no collar on.  DSC_3543 (1)DSC_3538 (1)IMG_0944 (1)

The night of last Blue Moon full moon in 2018

This is nothing new but is subsequent post of another images of full moon, which I had first posted with a monochrome image. .

Like every month do, it fascinated me again.  Sydney sky was perfect for seeing full moon and it made me calm and peaceful in bathing her bright yet gentle light.

I hope these photos are good enough to tell you how beautiful night it was.

I snapped her on the ferry.

Snapshots of my first full moon of 2018

I like watching and photographing full moon every month.  Full moon is beautiful but I like her especially when she appears.  However, I have been missing to photograph her this year.  I missed first full moon which was on 2nd of January.  At that time clouds built all of sudden in the evening and did not clear out until very late at night.  Second full moon was on 31st of the month and it was the night of heavy rainfall and could not see astral show that happened at night (I was really keen to watch eclipse).

So on the day of first full moon of this month (second full moon is on 31st), I set my camera on the tripod and to photograph her.  I checked the rising point and line of orbit with my astral free app on iPhone.  I was just hoping the moon popping out between clouds that again appeared along to the sun was setting down.

To be very honest with you, I was not sure if the spot I chose was the best, probably not.  Why I chose there was because was eager to take a picture of full moon with Sydney Harbour Bridge together in one shot.  The moon orbit may take one end of Harbour Bridge according to the app so I just hoped to manage it.

The moon appeared.

she, however, rose a little far left than I had thought it must have been, and was setting  behind a high rise residential building.  So I changed position a bit giving up Harbour Bridge and to photograph her with Luna Park together in stead.  The residential building stood out in silhouette in the dark with backlight made by moon.  I was waiting for another several minutes and then she, just came up above the building, now hid into the clouds straight up.

I felt it funny somehow and was laughing as photographing because she reminded me of someone like a little shy girl who hid behind her mum (or dad) when she says hi.  🙂

Anyway, I took several shots of her.  She continued rising only behind the clouds but her bright yet graceful light was enough to make me happy to see and photograph her.

I like the shady full moon also.  It ended up adding some mood in photo.

I already look forward next full moon which is coming the end of this month.
