Moonrise

Click to enlarge

I took this shot off of my rooftop patio a few weeks ago. It was amazing, the moon had just cleared the horizon when I went out. When I came back in about half an hour later it was already high in the sky and not nearly as orange looking.

Visit Skywatch Friday for hundreds of other skies from around the world, and then see you back here at midnight Saturday (Israel time, that's 22:00 on the continent and 5:00pm EDT) for Summer Stock Sunday. The weather's really heating up and summer is in full swing, so keep those cameras out to capture all those special summer memories!

Looks very stylish - ready to accessorize a wall. I like the blink of the big city - the Moon looks so commanding in this size and color!

Robin said...

My actually quite small city would be tickled pink to hear you refer to it as the big city LOL.

Erin said...

lovely lovely moon capture.
i keep meaning to join in the summer stock meme...oh i need to do that this weekend :)
hope you are having a better day.

Leora said...

It's a lovely moon, Robin. Beautiful with all the twinkle of the "big city." FYI, my cousins up north jokingly refer to Tiberias as "eer Hagedolah" (the big city).

James said...

That really is amazing and beautiful especially when enlarged.

Sanna said...

Very nice shot of the moon! =)

Reader Wil said...

Hi Robin! This moon is really inspiring and I think that many poets start creating a poem! Have a great SWF.

Carver said...

What a great shot of the orange moon. Beautifully done.

Esther Garvi said...

Oh, that is so cool! I have yet to take my "perfect" moon shot... I do enjoy watching it though!!

Thom said...

Excellent my friend. My little iPhone doesn't get good night shots. Go figure LOL. Love this

Wowee, great moon!

Thanks for the Shalom Chanoch song line in your comment. It is true. Whenever I hear a helicopter go right over the house, I go out and watch till it starts to land, worrying and saying a little prayer. As in http://jerusalemhillsdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/02/helpful-helicopters.html

I hope things will be well for you and soon.

I love moon photos! And orange moons are always so interesting. Beautiful!

Darla said...

What a wonderful capture, the moon is not easy to photograph.

kaye said...

lovely . . . I've yet to get a nice moon shot.

Dina said...

Yeah, you're right. It never even occurred to me to think of tourist helicopters. Some 90% (I'd say) of the choppers here are the big brown ones.
But we also had the convoy of three big army helicopters carrying President Bush fly over, and late also Pope Baruch. So it's not ALWAYS a medical case.

Nice moon shot, Robin! Glad you were out to capture it.

Sylvia K said...

What a marvelous moonshot, Robin! Isn't it great to be able to capture a shot like this? Thanks for sharing and I love your header! My kind of kitchen! My first time to your blog, but I'll be back for sure!
Happy SWF!

ahh the moon, one of my favourite subjects.

Gorgeous colour! It's a shame it doesn't stay that way for long.

My Skywatch is here

This would be a great Halloween moon with it's orange glow!
I like that you were able to capture the city lights below.
Nice shot!

Looks like a fishing bobber sinking to the bottom of the vast sea of night. Wonderful shot, Robin.

I see the man in the moon Thanks

ellievellie said...

Big or small - you made your city proud! I like the way you cut the image - wide - looks modern /like HD screen :)/

NicoleB said...

Oh wow, picture perfect is all I can say.
Perfect colour and great with the city lights.
Wow and woe again!

Karen said...

That's one cool shot of the moon...

I love how you also caught the twinkling lights of the buildings below..

Happy SWF and have a great weekend. :-)

Mojo said...

Sweet! And not easily captured. Especially when you're trying to include detail on the ground where the light ... isn't. Marvelous!

marcia@joyismygoal said...

Robin that shot is so worth framing, as mentioned above. quite the capture of twinkling lights and detail of the moon with its dramatic color as well. Well done to you and the creator

maryt/theteach said...

I like this very much, Robin! :)

Glennis said...

Nice coloured moon, orange on black looks great.
