Have you noticed how family gets involved in skywatch? We’re driving along, or eating a meal, and one of the kids says "Hey – look at that! It would be great for Skywatch, mom!" And they run get a camera. And hand it to Prince Farming. Isn’t that funny? And cute? Actually I like it. It’s like they’re taking interest in what I’m doing, like I take interest in what they’re doing. And they hand the camera to Farming because my hands shake. Like leaves. So he gets steadier shots. You all liked his pond shot a few weeks ago, so here’s a moon shot he took too. (You know about me and moons . . . the photographing of them, I mean!!)
Actually what the kids were WANTING you to see is that there was ice/snow on the trees. So that grayish hue isn’t fog – it’s ice. Not as spectacular as in real life, but we can pretend that the moon was the real focus, and that makes it okay.
I’ve promised to be brief in my posts (to you AND to myself). But I can’t resist this one (since I didn’t post yesterday). Part of the season’s busy-ness is due to school programs and the like. Here is a shot of the piano recital. Both kids played in it, but the camera only worked during our favorite child’s performance (that’s what I tell my son, anyway).
Poor boy – he’ll need therapy as badly as his mom does before he grows up . . .
Happy Skywatch Friday! You can see more skies from all over the world by visiting Skywatch Friday.
