After more than a week of cloudy, rainy skies we had a clear day with a lovely blue sky, so at last I managed to take a photo of the Moon.
I’d love to get a shot of it every day that it’s visible so that I could have a complete set of it’s different phases, but the weather often conspires against me. Hopefully over the months I can fill in the gaps to make up my collection. I know there are lots of brilliant photos available on the internet, shots taken with much better cameras than mine, but there’s something special and satisfying about taking your own photos.
Here’s one of them which I’m really pleased with. It’s not brilliant, but it’s good for a point and shoot camera. It’s a waxing, gibbous Moon 83% illuminated, 4 days away from being full. The photo was taken on the 26th January,2010 at 5.30pm.
