Tuesday, For Now

Photobucket
Hi everyone!!

Sorry I've not posted in a bit. It was a great weekend, and I have many pictures and a few words to share with you on the subject. It was also kind of a tiring weekend, though, and when my internet access crapped out on me last evening, I took the chance to enjoy a little quiet down time, when I suppose I ought to have been cropping and developing photos and doing some rough draft writing so I'd be ready to blog when the opportunity presented itself.

You'll forgive me, I hope, that I've not regaled you with stories and song about the great times we had this holiday weekend. I will soon. I promise. I hope you all had terrific weekends, too!

Meanwhile, I thought you might enjoy these two shots from this evening. The one above was taking from the Stop N Shop parking lot, the one below, as the full Hunter's Moon rose over Town Cove in Orleans. I wish the optical illusion was photograph-able...since the moon appeared about three times this size when I stopped for the picture.

Isn't it so odd when our eyes/minds are fooled into thinking the moon is gigantic, only to see it ordinary size when a photo is taken? So strange!

It was a great weekend, and I look forward to reading your remembrances of it! :) In the meantime, I did a brief post, but no photos yet!

No joke: the moon was HUGE when I stopped...and then the camera shrunk it down again. One of those times when I imagine a painting or sketch would get it closer to right than a photograph.

It *was* a great weekend...and will try to pull my head and some photos together right shortly!! : )

Well, even just "normal" sized it is a beautiful moon and a beautiful shot of it over the Cove. We had a lovely clear night tonight and the moon was inspiring to watch even here. No pretty water reflections, though.

I do love how the reflection seems to almost vibrate in the water. That's a bit of its own optical illusion. :)

That’s the funny thing the moon is bigger than you can recognized him, I’m glad you’ve a good weekend.

Beautiful last picture! I love the moon's reflection on the water.
