#114 fly me to the moon

114/365 fly me to the moon, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

let me play among the stars
let me see what spring is like
on Jupiter and Mars…

I am not quite ‘over the moon’ about this picture. I should have had something spring-like in the foreground to give the picture some depth, but that will have to wait for another time.

    Nice photo – you must have a good lens to get that much detail.

    I’m impressed. I love moon shots that remind me that the moon is a satellite and not just a 2 dimensional disk.

    Susan and Tania, thank you for your comments. I recently purchased a Tamron 18-270 lens, which gets me closer to things than my old ones. I was surprised myself when I saw the picture. I’ve always wanted to get pictures of the moon but never really succeeded. I have cheated here a bit, though. The picture is cropped – in the originally the moon wasn’t quite this close, but I was amazed at the result.
