So I was just a few hours late of capturing the last full moon, but probably best that it wasn’t in totality since I managed to see some mighty impressive crater shadows. Here are two photos, one of the “full” moon, and the other one focusing on the craters.
If you want to see some other truly amazing sun photos, visit Andrew’s “Above the Clouds” blog at http://bongo69.wordpress.com/. 🙂
Managed to get some sun time in today, these pictures were taken using the telescope as the camera lens. Note the spot/flare that appears in the lower left quadrant, it was only captured in one photo.
I do not seek. I find. – Pablo Picasso
I no longer look at “things” just as “things” anymore. Each becomes a potential image, a subject just waiting to be transformed into something that you just can’t tell what it is. Sometimes I succeed in my mission, other times not so much. But what I have found is a mission and a path of exploration. Who knows what I’ll find? Well, you will. 😉
I have not been able to restrict my postings to just “what is it?!?” mystery pictures, as some of you have seen, I am currently on an astrophotography kick, taking pictures of the sun, the moon, and the stars. I suppose the allure is that I don’t know what I’ll find until after I release the shutter. These little gifts come in the form of sun spots, crisp crater shadows, or lately, different colored streaks of stars in our night sky.
But alas, I think it would be impossible to disguise such items, so I’m left exploring our Earthly items, such as today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture. Can you tell?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 84)
Is it a “fungus among us” (algae)? The moss/fungus/green stuff that grows on tree bark? Why, yes, it is fungus/algae. But where? Underwater? No? But close! On a rock? Yes! Fugus/algae on a rock.
Yesterday’s picture was inspired by that funky green algae/fungus and tiny crustaceans covering the rocks in a jetty on Tybee Island, Georgia. I thought the algae/fungus looks almost yarn-like. But obviously didn’t to Gail or Steve! Or Jerry. 😉 (See there, Jerry, gave you honorable mention!)
