Isn't that just beautiful! I love the way you cropped it too. I never get a picture THAT clear when I try to snatch the moon!

I love the blush of colour in it, and the words you gave it! I always hate saying goodbye to summer, but there is a beauty in it, more so than the other seasons I think. I never say 'goodbye' to winter so much as I say 'HELLO!' to spring LOL. You captured a moment beautifully here. Happy skywatching!

Nooooo! I'm so not ready for summer to end!

Beautiful shot and quote though, even if I refuse to accept its premise.

It's hard to believe summer is nearly over for this year. It just arrived here in Ontario. We had a very long spring that lasted into August, LOL.

The hint of peach just flushing the moon is divine

Very nice, tranquil is the word that comes to mind. I also really like your playlist; sometimes I leave your site up just to listen.

Sad to see the summer moon go. But, rejoice! The autumn moon approaches. It's my favorite.

Wow! What a great photo! You are so good at this, Carletta! That moon was really beautiful, too. I stared at it that night for quite a while. Also love the haiku.

WOW! This is outstanding. The minimalistic approach is delightful.
Beautiful marriage of words and photo.

Splendid pictures, Carletta!
I think you've used at least a 200mm tele, haven't you?
Happy weekend!

Such a clear and beautiful picture of the moon. I love the contrast of the yellow and black.
Not an easy shot to get. Well, not for me anyway. tee hee

What a gorgeous picture of the moon. I am always fascinated by the night sky, especially when there is a full moon. You've captured it well here.
