You did what we couldn't last night, Jack. There was so much moisture in the air and the sky still so light and blue, the moon wasn't visible until it was already well above the horizon. <pout>

@Judy aka L@dybug: This was the full moon from a month ago.

I guess the interesting contrast of gray tones and color of the full moon in hues of sun.
Exercise every day to capture something that really excites us is the disciplinarian to continue to stay sane in this wild world. Congratulations Jack.

Beautiful image, Jack. I see you continue to impress us with your outstanding creations through the lens.
I really like the gradient hue of the sky and silhouette of the tree tops with this beautiful moon.
I could see this image out there used commercially on products or prints.
Sorry, I've not been around to visit. I need to change that.
