  1. I love waking up to Moon Longing every morning. My next purchase will be Tuscan moon. So peaceful.

    1. So pleased to know you have a coy of it hanging in your home:)

  2. Mary Ann,
    Last night I was coming home and the moon was hanging just above the trees. It was large and bright, lighting up the dark evening sky. I wanted a picture. I really wanted a picture. I stopped my car - in the road - and got out my phone. You know that didn't work. As big as the moon was my phone couldn't capture what I was seeing. So I drove on down the road to get closer. We have a road nearby which has no outlet. I thought this would be the perfect place to try again. I got out of my car once again --- I'm sure the people on this isolated road were wondering what I was up to standing in the street. This time, with my iPad, I tried to capture a picture again. Of course, as large as the moon was, the picture didn't capture the beauty I was seeing. I felt like the moon and I were playing a game and I was losing! I had to laugh. In my adventure I was reminded of your beautiful work. I suppose I just don't have the tools to capture the moon, but I'm thankful I always have your site to remind me of the moon and its many faces.

    Thanks for sharing your work,

    1. I have done similar things, all the time knowing the image I will make with my phone is not one I will be sharing. I looked out the window about 4 a.m. and noticed the moon. A bit of a hazy night.

      I shot all of these images with a Nikon, often using a 300 mm lens and a tripod.

      Thanks Cathy for your lovely comment. Made my day.
