November Moon

I just can't resist photographing the moon from the terrace. This time it was cloudy and we didn't think we would see it but Ned went up to check it out and called me. We could see it through the clouds. I grabbed the camera still set to 3200 ISO from the Day of the Dead shots in the cemetery and made a few. It was a little lighter on this night and I love the colors of the buildings in the foreground. I guess I'm going to have to get serious about photographing the moon from the terrace and do it properly......on the tripod and at a lower ISO. Who knows....one of these days I might get one that could be printed.

What an incredible view you have there!

Thanks, La Gringa. I do have a wonderful view although the gringos who live on the hill on the other side of the church feel they have the "best" view. You can just see their surprise when they go on my terrace and look toward town. They never expect to see a view like this from this Mexican Colonia. But we can see just about all the churches in town from the terrace. I feel so lucky to have this little house.

Outstanding image, and you did this without a tripod. Your hands are sure steadier than mine.

Billie, you always capture incredible images at low light levels! What a treat!
