A beautiful Sky Watch picture... I love this one... I like the silhoette of the tree as much as the moon it self.. both compliment the other.

Thank you
Tom

The silhouette of the tree gives the whole set a very good touch. And the moon appears in a very perfect way.

Howwwwwwwwlll!!! Don't mind me; I'm just out for a stroll in the moor.

Lunacy aside, there is something appealing about the prickliness of those branches poking at you from the soft moonlight. Nice shot!

Yes, we both have moon shots up! I always find moon shots are quite difficult to get well, you've done a marvelous job here. The silhouette effect looks great with the moon. Keep up the good work!
