Favorite Things~Earthshine

Earthshine

Earthshine

This is by no means a great photograph, but the moon was so attractive this morning I had to give it a quick try.   One of my favorite things to see is earthshine, where sunlight reflects off the earth onto the dark portion of the moon, making it dimly visible.   Hey, I’m a simple guy.

  1. I also took a moment to notice how beautiful the moon looked this morning… considered taking a picture of it, but then remembered how badly my photos turned out last time. Glad you were able to capture it, nice to see it again!! That’s been a HUGE challenge for me, trying to get a decent shot of the moon without it looking like a glaring white dot.

    This is very nice, Charles, both aesthetically and technically. It pays to keep the camera handy for moments like this, especially when you get rewarded with a shot like this. I love that blue.

  3. Earthshine, it’s something I hadn’t heard of before. I know the problem of catching a picture of the moon. Congratulations on capturing the subtle glow.

  4. It looks like an eclipse. Excellent capture of the perfection of the moon and not the blur most of us get. Obviously it’s skill and equipment both of which you have.
