Shoot The Moon II

The last time we had a clear night it also happened to contain a full moon (Shoot The Moon). We had another clear night on February 29, Leap Day. This time it contained a waxing quarter moon. My fellow blogger, Andrew, posted some information that I wasn't aware of (see his moon post here). Apparently, a quarter moon hasn't occurred on February 29 since 1935 and won't occur again until 2088. Since I won't be around in 2088, I'm glad I took some photos Wednesday night.

Rook. Nice. I have tried to shoot sunsets, sun rises, the moon, fog, etc. I'm just a SAHM with a great camera, but I still can't get my pics to turn out. Thanks for stopping my blog and commenting! Your fishing pics make me miss our boat...
