Terri of Second Wind Leisure always inspires me to press on, past being too busy, having too many trials, dealing with sorrow or pain. She does it all and still posts Sunday Stills each week – internet or no internet. This week Sunday Stills examines the celestial regions: sun, moon, stars and clouds, and UFOs. I’m kidding, no UFOs, but her first picture is very interesting!
“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”Deng Ming-Dao
Tiny Photo Tip
I found out this week from Cee Neuner why my moon shots with my Canon Rebel are not as clear and precise as a regular point and shoot camera or cell phone. First of all, my lens is old, but more importantly it is long. What little light there is has to go through a long dark valley of the shadow of death. So what you see are ghostly pictures of the moon. You can barely see a celestial rabbit in the moon.
