t is for telephone pole






with a big fat full moon next to it. well, almost full moon. technically tonight is the full moon. this one pictured here is from last evening and is only 99% full. new years eve will be our second full moon this month which qualifies it as a "blue moon" since this rarely happens,... but once in a blue moon.
it's amazing what one can learn while googleing the moon! wait, wasn't this post supposed to be about the letter T?

a big thank you to my son ian for capturing this beautiful moon shot.

today is abc wednesday thanks to our host mrs. nesbitt. the letter for the day is T. please go here to join in the fun.

Excellent composition!

Oh, Lily! That is a terrific shot! I was just out looking at the moon and that in itself was marvelous because it's the first day/night that it hasn't been rainy, clouded, etc. Your composition is indeed marvelous!

Enjoy, my friend!

Telephone pole or moon - no matter. This is an awesome shot. Thanks for the info about the December blue moon.

Mara said...

Well, you mentioned the telephone pole! That should be enough, especially if there's such a great moon next to it.

'T' is also for 'Terrific' moon and overall photo!

Like mother, like son.

What a show stopper. Never expected to find such a stunning Telephone pole shot. These fall/winter moons are something else. What time of day did your son take this photo?

This is an awesome shot of the moon next to the telephone pole. Love it! Early this morning around 6a.m. I tried to get some shots of the full moon. I don't think I was successful. I'll know for sure when I look at the photos I've downloaded. I had a hard time trying to photograph the moon, especially with all the lamp posts on. *sigh* Once again, great shot!

Big G came home talking about the huge moon. Too bad it's going to rain tonight. It was so bright last night. PGma

The telephone pole just adds to the otherwise terrific moon shot.

Pietro said...

Fantastic shot, Lily!
I think you used at least a 300mm telephoto lens.

I saw a BIG orange moon last night while driving to a friend's place for dinner. Since I was in unfamiliar territory (another township), I didn't stop to take photos. I had to watch for street signs.

Beautiful moon there!
