A beautiful moon

“The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand.”

Frederic Lawrence Knowles quotes

From 2010_05_27


A few weeks ago we had a full moon shining brightly through the cloud covered sky. It looked so beautiful and mysterious at the same time. It's nights like these that I enjoy sitting on the cabin deck (after being bathed in mosquito repellent) and listening to the peeper frogs and watching the moon go by.

I won't spoil the moment with the joke my husband told that night about the planet Uranus. :-)

Love this shot. Gosh SHelley - it really is a beautiful moon!

How still did you have to sit or did you set up your tri-pod?

You're good!
HAGD! Karen

This is beautiful and serene.
I find that drinking the bug repellent helps even more.

Hi Shelley, Are you saying that you have Squeeters up there in Michigan????? I didn't think you all had those old stinkin' bugs.... Believe it or not but we don't have many of them here... WELL---we might this Summer since we've had so much rain. But --so far, I haven't seen any...

Beautiful moon picture.... Now you have us all curious about Greg's joke!!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

I absolutely adore sitting on the patio at night...hearing the crickets and other night noises. Watching the clouds move by the moon, creating a halo effect. I love seeing, hearing and feeling the breeze. You are blessed with abundant wildlife!!

A Halloween moon! Gorgeous, Shelley!

Charli and me said...

That is amazing! I think it would be wonderful to sit on your deck and enjoy the sounds and the stars in the sky. Sigh......
