    Here is an image of the setting moon taken this morning when I awoke. Took these pics from inside as it was too cold to go outside in my pyjamas. :lol2:

    It looked great with its frame of the cocos palm fronds from our front yard trees.

    A close up of the full moon. Well, as much of a close up as we can manage being so far from the actual moon. :whistle:

    The sky in these images is darker than it was at the time. It was a soft grey which quickly burnt off to become blue.

    Lovely photos of the moon Joy! yes, great shot the one of it framed by the coco palms. One doesn't realise just how hard it can be to photograph the moon I have tried many times with out much success :photos:

    These last two were taken using the Landscape Scene Position of my camera, Dawn, as it was daylight. Not that they come out looking as if it is daylight, though. :O The others were done using the Night Scene Position which uses the camera's stabiliser. Most of this camera's SP uses the stabiliser, which is good for me as I don't have a tripod.

    Thanks Rick. We were lucky here, too, to see it. We have been missing many of these events due to the unusually rainy times we have been experiencing during our current La Niña weather cycle. :rain:
