Playing Games With The Full Moon Okinawa, Japan 20 Apr 2011

       Last night between 12:57AM and 1:09AM the games the moon was playing with me came to an end.

                The little sucker had been hiding behind clouds every time I went out to shoot.

      As I walked home last night it peeked through the clouds and so, I decided to play my games.

                 With the Pentax, a tripod and SIGMA 50-500MM LENS I got closer and closer.

                                             Until I got that sucker right where I wanted it.

Now, I'm done playing games, freezing my furry toes-off in my flip-flops, trying to catch the full moon in Okinawa, Japan.  This full moon thing happens a lot.  Maybe it'll be warmer next month.  Ya reckon?

As soon as I clean up the mess from all the wife's planters I knocked over last night, I'm going back to bed.

This month's Full Moon Photos were inspired by THE ASTROBLOG

Great shots!
I can clearly see the major craters such as Copernicus and Tycho.

And thanks for featuring my blog in this post :)

Thank you. I don't think I've ever brought that big lens out to shoot the moon before. So, I have to give you credit for inspiring me.

These are lovely! Worth a couple of frozen toes I would say!

Peofessor McKinnon,
Thank you. Fortunately, the toes didn't freeze. A few of the wife's planters got knocked over, though. So, I got a cold shoulder!
