A few nights ago, we had a full moon. It was so pretty that I decided to run out and test to see what kind of a picture I could get with my iPad, since it seems to take some really great ones. Well, I'm not even going to show you that photo. I deleted it immediately, because it was very grainy. No surprise, really, as there's no way to control the lighting.

So back into the house I went for the trusty DSLR, just because the moon was so lovely. Here are the shots I got.

The moon ended up perfectly round in these, unlike some oval and otherwise-funny shots I've gotten previous times. Maybe I'm getting steadier in my old age? Doubtful - ha. It's probably because it wasn't terribly dark out yet.

Try as I might, though, I just can't capture the "face" in the moon. I guess I don't have the right kind of lens for that.

Here's a pretty view of it behind the birdbath, with a little extra lighting added via camera settings.

It was a most beautiful evening!
