Experiment in color temperature using manual white balance. This was at the cool end of the scale obviously. I liked the results though.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Very nice, Mojo!

Sanna said...

Pretty! =)

RuneE said...

Silly me - I thought the moon was made of yellow cheese!

dAwN said...

Very Nice!

I swear I heard something howling. :-) Great shot!

Barb said...

Your white disc of a moon is caught in the dark web of the trees! Lovely - I like the experiment.

Susan said...

Hey, spooky AND beautiful! I love moon shots, and trees--loved this.

Photo Cache said...

I easily get spooked by images like this, of course until I realize that there's nothing to worry about.

reminds me of a glowing ball in the garden ;) beautiful capture with the tree branches framing it.
have a wonderful weekend.

Carver said...

Interesting shot. Almost spooky.

I can hear the wolfs... Go Wolfpack :)

Dewdrop said...

I'm waiting for the howl... waiting. Wow! Cool, shot! The moon is HUGE!

Fantastic shot, Mojo! Absolutely gorgeous! I'm not able to sign in today for whatever reason now, but I do have some pretty cool skies!
Have a great weekend!

I have yet to take a decent moon picture, but while I wait for a better camera, I enjoy yours! :-)

Daryl said...

A witchy moon .. or maybe an elusive Moon Tree?

Martha Z said...

I haven't yet figured out how to get the moon. This one seems to be trying to hide and not doing a very good job of it.

SandyCarlson said...

I like it an awful lot, too. I am trying to imagine standing in that spot feeling so close to that huge moon. Magic.

Bryan said...

I've always preferred cooler moons to the cheese moons, and this one's no exception. They just seem to better reflect the mysteriousness and falling temperatures that night brings.

Kathy said...

Perfect shot. LOL it looks like it should be on a book cover about vampires. =)

Vita Stunder said...

I like this shot load!
And the words you put to it..

Yeah, it could be freaky.
But with the words
'love the sky you're under'
it speaks in many ways and
I like it that way.

Ghosts are not frightning.
Humans are.

Have a great friday! :)

Kay said...

That is an awesome shot.

No wonder people worshiped the moon... I mean, just look at it!

Denise said...

Great photo Mojo, that moon is truly beautiful, great shot.

napaboaniya said...

Beautiful with a touch of spook to it! Heard any wolf howling? :P

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

I have the most difficult time photographing the moon... and lightning. I love how it shines through the trees.

Karen said...

It looks very halloween ...sort of spooky :-)
