A Simple Shot

The theme for City Daily Photo today is Beauty in Simplicity. I considered several types of photos including birds against a simple background a flower close-ups. Then I came across this image in my files and decided it would be a shame to let it languish there any longer.

I took this at full zoom with my Nikon P510, steadying the camera by resting it on my mailbox. I did not crop this in processing. I've had that camera for several years and while it drives me crazy with it's erratic focusing, it has a good zoom lens.

  1. It took a splendid photo of the moon, love the details. Clever to use the mailbox to steady your camera.

  2. What a great choice for the theme. Lunar simplicity.

  3. Oh, I wish I could get a great moon shot like yours. Nicely done!

  4. I like how you frame it. That makes more simplicity for that moon.

  5. Truly stunning, congrats, my sweet friend !

    Sending blessings on your new week
