    I am envious! Not just of the moon, but also living near the water. ;-) Great shot! I had the setup out last night, family friends came over for fireworks and I figured if we had a break in the clouds we could have viewed but no go. Thank for sharing!

    Great picture!

    We had nothing but heavy cloud last night. Fingers crossed for this evening.

    I liked the image because the Moon is clearly photographed in the southern hemisphere, an orientation I don't get to see in Ohio, USA.
