The November Moon;

With 2 days until the moon is full I jumped the gun because each day the sky is getting a little more iffy. On Black Friday the moon was huge and the un-illuminated portion was very visible but........ no camera so no pictures.

Today I went down and walked the flats toward the Inlet so I would get some pictures. I figured that since I've gotten so many nice messages regarding photos, I would post this years November Moon.

Nice Ard, just how cold was it when you took that photo?

It was 9* with no wind, not too bad but I was down there for about 2.5 hours and the fingers were a little cold on the controls. I can't fish now so I take whatever opportunity there may be to get outdoors and catch something

Thanks Stumpy but there are a lot of professional photographers around here. I just take pictures and we have a few that were enlarged to 18 X 24 then got a mat & frame job done on them. I wish I could get the hang of editing so that I could clean them up really well but alas most programs are quite complicated. I've considered a course at UAA to learn editing though. Until that day would come I get what's in the camera so it's pretty much like shooting Kodachrome to me

I'll be spending some time at the cabin over the winter and sometimes that results in some really good pictures. If & when I get something pretty I'll post them.

the Moon shot

Ard,
Worth framing; as are many of your efforts.
Do you ice fish? This helps ward off cabin fever with
my brothers-in-law in Michigan. But I'm sure you've learned
to cope with the Alaskan winters.
Best,

Beautiful shot, Ard. Beautiful place.

Check out Photoshop Elements. It's a stripped-down version of the full program, probably more than enough to do any editing you'd want to do. There are a ton of tutorials online, probably get you well underway. And I imagine yo have a little time to fill over the next several months. I think we are of similar vintage- and what I know of PS I've learned on my own- meaning it must be pretty doable.
