The night before last, the full moon rose as a majestic
with clouds about,
it was now you see it, now you don't
yet even with obscuring clouds,
it glowed like a pumpkin in the sky.
When your heart beats like an erratic kettle drum, it is not
easy to keep the hands steady.

I know that feeling of that kind of heart beatingReplyDelete
and this moon would have done that for me, too
- what a BEAUT!
Gorgeous, breathtaking captures and what a glorious way to end a day -- any day!! A pumpkin moon indeed! Thanks for sharing these, Arija, they are awesome!!ReplyDelete
Magic. And my hands do a kind of St Vitus dance too - to much less beautiful effect than yours.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures. Keep on getting those shots and sharing them.ReplyDelete
Those are amazingly beautiful moon shots Arija. I can well believe your heart was pounding. And obviously you did a perfect job of keeping your hand and camera steady, because the pictures are sheer perfection.ReplyDelete
Wonderful moon shot for SWF ~ Hope you like mine too ~ thanks, carol ^_^ReplyDelete
I can imagine my hands shaking at such magnificence as well. So beautiful Arija, thank you for sharing these precious moments with all of us.ReplyDelete
That's a shot to which blur lends itself exceedingly well! Photographic error is only in the eye of the pedantic!!ReplyDelete
I think the shaky camera give these a beautiful, artistic look. Love the colors, too!ReplyDelete
That glorious pumpkin moon would make anyone's hands shake. Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Wow - these are magical!ReplyDelete
Wonderful moon shot !!ReplyDelete
The blur, whether caused by erratic clouds or erratic heartbeats, adds a touch of mystery to the rising moon.ReplyDelete

I have seen an orange tangerine moon but a golden pumpkin moon is the first to me. With such a zooming, you can’t keep your hands steady especially when you’re so excited.ReplyDelete
