Last Spring, a dog adopted me.  Poor thing wandered into my yard starving on a freezing rain morning, trying to eat the birdseed from my feeder.  She's become an awesome little critter, and frequently drags me out for early morning walks.  One morning I ran back in to grab my camera and tripod to capture the moon at sunrise.

Grabbed this one as I was heading back into the house, freehand, no tripod.  Came out way better than I expected!

And this one ... goofing around with PHotoshop.  Applied the "glowing edges" tool to the photo. Really kinda liked the result.

Awesome pics, Anne!

I have this huge pecan tree in my front yard that is basically backed only by a horizon.  I've gotten a bunch of great sundown pictures with it, but sadly I have to leave it behind when I move.  

The pup sounds like a good addition to the household. [smile]

I'm loving this property I'm on.  I kept my house in Chicago so it's rented out and I'm renting this property.  So it doesn't feel like mine, but it's 2-3 acres bordering another 90 that belongs to the landlord, with my horse boarded at their facility to where I can see him with binoculars in winter time.  (In summer the trees obscure the view of the pasture.)  Anyhoo, lots of pretty trees, hayfields, flowers, and critters to photograph.

Wow that's a really nice frosty effect [smile]
That last one... if you took the cropped the left edge off and ended with a more square look I think it would be even more powerful.
Cheers

I got to thinking of this other "moon" pic I have from a few years ago, worth sharing. It took quite a bit of patience to get it just right, but I was pretty pleased with the results.
