365…344

Tuesday, 10 December 2019

Well wasn’t that a nice break from cold weather – 10°C at 7 am – even for the short while it was here.

There was a fleeting moment where I wondered what to do for today’s photo. I had taken a few blue jay shots this morning but nothing spectacular. I watched the sunset but was tied up with work. Hmmm, maybe borrow a photo from my trip? I’d prefer a shot from today.

It will come. Don’t worry.

Alrighty then. I left it and went about my business which was setting up my Christmas village. I stepped outside to put some things in the recycle bin when I noticed the moon rising. It was spectacular! Almost full, whispy clouds floating in front of it…wow!

I grabbed my coat, tripod and camera, asked goggle assistant for the best settings for full moon photos, set my camera then stepped outside to shoot. The settings were a good starting point but not ideal. With a little tweaking I managed a couple of not too bad shots.

The idea of painting a night scene with a church came out of nowhere. Kind of cute. Maybe tomorrow I’ll paint another one and add a horse and sleigh…
