Moon Rise (Friday Skies)

Thought I'd continue with my moon theme on Fridays (but only of two posts in a row count as a theme!)

Was waiting for the fish and chips to be cooked - just an occasional holiday routine, before any health conscious memers get overexcited - and this huge moon was pulling itself up over Port Phillip Bay. People were just stood watching it grow. It looked like some form of special effect for a film. As the moon rose higher the optical illusion that makes its look sop big when its near the horizon faded, but even then it was pretty special.

Terrific moon shots, Stewart! I've been able to get a couple of pretty good ones lately, but you just don't always know what you're getting for sure until you download them! You did really well with these! Hope you have a great weekend!

The moon looks so big! I wish I could capture something like this too. Unfortunately I cannot seem to find the moon anywhere at about that time of the day. It's usually too dark out to capture the moon with the landscape.

What a whopping moon. It always gives me a shiver when the moon is so huge at the horizon.
