These were all taken last Friday.




There was an incredible ring around the moon that night,with high thin clouds floating fast beneath it. The ring was too big for me to capture whole with what equipment I have.

This picture doesn't do it justice.
(Be sure to see the moon in the last post, too! :)

I wonder if that was the night my husband heard on the news there was a halo around the moon. I tried to get a picture but I can't ever get a moon shot at night.
Nice shot!

I had never heard of a halo around the moon -- certainly didn't see it myself and no news said anything. Thanks for sharing!

Came here from Dot's blog. These are beautiful shots.

Love the steeple picture too and the birds, and the Icy View shot.

We seem to be focused on the same objects!

Seeing the last picture makes me ask: did it rain or snow the day after?

Anita said...

Thank everyone!

We DID have snow flurries the next morning after the ring around the moon...

DarylE said...

Oh my .. I would say you've got a fine lens there .. what do you use? They are such good shots.

Anita said...

Thank you...
Um... actually, it's just a little generic sort of digital camera, a Fujifilm FinPix S700... :)

Alice said...

Beautiful photos of the sky.

Beautiful shots - so serene. You did a really good job!

Anita said...

Thank you...

That is the beauty of winter, to me... Serenity... Some hate winter because they think things are dead... A walk in winter, to me, feels more like stepping into my son's room in the middle of the night when he's sleeping... That feeling of peace that permeates me, I can feel in the winter air...

Yolanda said...
