Beautiful Full Moon Sky

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

The Sensations

It was an absolute feast for our eyes this past full moon day. There was a thin layer of clouds, well spread and the full moon just above the clouds simply lit up the night. This view is from our apartment’s balcony. I actually had to take a couple of pics and stitch them together in photoshop.

I got this shot during our trip to Acadia National Park last year… This bird was dead and washed ashore. I was originally thinking about a right title to share this picture and then came by this topic for the weekly photo challenge… thought it kind of made sense…

Lets break the cycle of hatred

Goks's Blog

It has been 10 years since the 09/11 attacks, one of the black days in the modern history. When thousands of innocent lives were snatched away from them and their loved ones in a blink of an eye.

Super Moon Sunday Pics

3.2S; F/2.8; ISO 400


This shot was from our parking lot. There are a lot of pine trees and the moon showed up within that little opening.
