Saturday Snapshots: Moon Bolt

The moon 


I thought I share one of my funny photo explorations. I don't have a tripod so I relied heavily on placing my elbows on the ledge to take this photo of the moon.  No need to photoshop as the moon sort of gave that bolt of light in the sky. The treetops are barely seen.  

To participate in  Saturday Snapshots meme hosted by Alyce @ at home with books, post a photo that you ( or a friend or a family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post at her site. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos you find online.

  1. That's great! I've done that on accident with some night photos, but mine have never turned out looking that good.

  4. I've tried the elbow-approach a few times but never had any accidents as good as this one.

  5. Wow. The moon is on a crazy trajectory. It kind of looks like one of those new squiggly light bulbs. Here's My Saturday Snapshot

  13. @Dizzy C I was beginning to think that way after finishing ten pics of the moon as I futilely tried to capture it. Have a great weekend too. Thanks for visiting.

  20. @bermudaonion I can't recall. I pressed the button just halfway down, let the lens focus on it's own and pressed down the way. Altho the cam alerted me by flashing the shake icon.

  22. @Pooch No, I haven't because it was either too cloudy or it was moonless night.
