Blue Moon

Found this beauty hanging over the
Hudson River one day (yes, day) last week.
Fortunately, I had my camera with me—
because as much as I love my iPhone,
I can't zoom in like this with it.

[It's Skywatch Friday. To see more, go here.]


  1. Wow, looks awesome!

  2. Ooh! I love this! Never thought to try and shoot the moon during the day. Great idea Alexa.

  3. Fabulous! I know what you mean about the phone camera :-)

  4. Wonderful image. Yes, the cameras in phones are wonderful little devices but the do not replace a real camera in many instances. Have a blessed week-end.

  5. Fantastic shot!
    Yes, like the others said, there is a difference in these cameras. Glad you had the big one with. How much zoom did you use?

  6. Carola—Thanks! It's a Sony Cybershot with a 30x zoom (I love it).

  7. I do love the night skies and had the opportunity last week to be in the darkest spot of the southeastern US. In the blink of an eye I saw to shooting stars and was amazed as I looked up at familiar constellations and then gazed at the Milky Way! Love this shot....
