Middle of the day Moon

Nikon D70s, f9, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, 450mm equivalent (click to enlarge)

This picture of the moon was taken a few days ago in the early afternoon from the front garden. Nasa have been up to things crashing two unmanned spacecraft on to the moon's surface to try and see if there were any signs of water in the past. An interesting experiment or a waste of money? I'm not sure.

It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever-flowing rivers. The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
Psalm 74:15-17

Great photo Daniel! Thanks for sharing it on your blog. How are preparations going for your move?

How very beautiful, Daniel! I'm most impressed with the detail on the large size image - it's like looking at a map.

Hi Gary - thanks - but please don't ask about preparations for the move! We are surrounded by boxes and there is so much to do and so little time to do it in 8-0.

Thank you Joc, yes not bad for an old Nikon lens I got on eBay for next to nothing.
