I took this picture some time last month and the image was not so clear. I thought I'd keep it in my files. Coincidentally last week I saw that a fellow blogger had a similar picture on her blog. While the quality of her photo is better than mine I mentioned to her that I would post mine to show the similarity. The first picture is from my downstairs window at 6:00 AM and as you can see it's still dark outside. I realized that my angle from where I was standing was not very conducive to capture the full effect of the moon and since I couldn't run outside in my pajamas I figured I'd run upstairs and get a better shot from there. Finally in front of another window I started to shoot and again I realized that I had forgotten to change the camera setting and had no time to remove the window screen. Once again the old cliche "haste makes waste.." seems apt.
