new moon

when I was out in the back yard with pippi tonight the moon was pretty amazing - just a little sliver of light at the bottom so I just had to try and take a photo.

The sky was so black - not a star to be seen !

I took this first photo and the flash automatically cut in

when I took this second photo - the flash didn't engage and its amazing how the whole moon suddenly appeared !

I think I've mentioned before how happy I am that I bought my digital SLR - its certainly worth every cent !


  1. Friday (31st of Aug) so Thurs for you - the New Moon is a Blue Moon - you may want to watch for it.

  2. Amazing difference with and without the flash! Don't forget to sew though!
