I always love to see the moon "peeking" through the tree branches--nice shot. I always get a little confused as to why it is a huge orange ball on the horion sometimes and other times a little yellow disc in the sky. It has been too long since I learned all of that in school--I'm in need of a "review" course!!! Have a nice week, Sallie. Mickie :)

Your post is gorgeous. Thank you!


I really liked this month's Harvest Moon - it lit up our forest! Glad you got a photo 'cause I didn't!


aahhh our little Luna..awesome.


That's the most perfect round ball ever!


I have to go back and look what day I was taking moon pics and see if it was the full moon.
The smallest - didn't know there was such a thing. :)
I like the softness of this and how those two little branches seem to be cradling the moon!

Lovely shot!


it's a sweet little moon
I love the tree silhouettes


Nice shot of the sky through the trees, Sallie. Last night I could see Jupiter as I looked at the moon from my front yard in Jupiter, Fl. pretty cool :D

I would love to 'capture' one of those huge harvest time full moons that scared the pants off me when I was a child...I thought it was falling on us!

That is a nice shot through the trees Sally.


I love the blue and black of your shot. So peaceful !


Wonderful shot.. the trees providing for a perfect frame :)

Love the framing in this photo!


I did notice that about this month's full moon, Sallie, but I didn't know about the reason for it, - I always think about October's full moon being great and orange and voluptuous, but I guess it can't possibly be if it is a time when it is furthest from earth.


I didn't take any shots of the full moon this month other than with my eye. Next week I'll have a view of the crescent moon in my sky shot for those who can spot it.


wow, when she was rising last night, she looked pretty big and orange to me! :)

When I saw the full moon the other night, I thought it looked smaller than usual. Now I know why!


The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full is just play!

My husband got a shot of the moon through a tree this week, too, but I've posted something completely different. This is beautiful, Sallie.

Nice shot. I didn't realize it was the smallest of the year - it looked large when it was rising the other day. But that's always true!


Lovely shot of the full moon, Sallie! Happy skywatching!


It's a lovely photo Sallie:)
Happy SWF to you!


I like the blue sky the tree and the moon in one. Stunning!

what a great moonshot, love it through the trees.


what a great moonshot5, love it through the trees.


I thought it looked small! I kept saying to Hubbers, "is the moon usually this tiny?", as I was trying to photograph it. You got a great shot, love the trees framing it.

Lovely moon shot, Sallie! I tried to capture it this morning, but it really is FAR away even though it looked enormous! Yours is terrific and I love the way you've framed it with the trees! Beautiful! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!



The moon was small but its more brighter! Pretty!


Sallie, your photo is so really that I began to grow hair all over my body. Then I started to howl;^)

lovely photo of the moon, always fun to watch as it travels through the seasons


Great shot of the moon through the tree branches.


Lovely shot of the moon through the trees.


I've never caught a full moon before, lucky you. So this is the smallest of the year eh?

Have a great weekend.
