Luna, Luna, Luna

I have always been fascinated with the moon. La Luna. There is a beauty found in it unlike any of man's creations, inventions or technology. No matter what we humans may try, and no matter how 'smart' we may become, we will never be able to replicate the extraordinary splendor of God's creation....the natural world.

I have always enjoyed gazing at the gentle magnificence of la luna on winter evenings...especially winter evenings because the stars are much brighter and clearer during winter, and thus really compliment and set off the beauty of the moon. But these photos I took a few weeks ago, in the midst of summer, on a completely starless night at my grandmother's.

It's always been a dream of mine to get a perfect, clear photo of the moon. But in the past, I had never been able to with what cameras I had in possession. Only until recently, could I photograph the moon at a better quality and one I was genuinely satisfied with, because, only until recently, (actually my 16th birthday in January) did I have a really good camera to shoot with.

So, finally, I've obtained some nice shots of one of my favorite subjects. What do you think? Have you ever tried photographing the moon? What came of your experiences? I'd love to hear about it!

Well, hope y'all's summer so far as been amazing! Mine sure has!



  1. I need to shoot a photograph of the moon now that I have a better camera. :) Beautiful photographs!

    1. Thanks RJ! If you take any, I'd love to see them!! :D

  2. It'd be LA luna, senorita! :P El is for when there's an O or an E on the end. A is feminine, and so it would be la. :) La luna, el sol. :) Sorry if that bursts your bubble. :P

    Great shots though!!! She looks HUGE! Beautiful job!

    1. Haha I was wondering about that. Thanks for pointing it's now fixed. ;D ;D And no it certainly burst my bubble. :P I appreciate corrections on mistakes that I may not have noticed.

      Thank-you for the compliments amiga! ;)
