Moon over Exeter

Coming home through Exeter on Sunday night I was yearning to capture the moon. We haven't had a lot of clear skies lately so when it the clouds have finally parted, and the moon has come out, it's a beautiful sight.

Although this wasn't the image I had hoped for at the time, the double chimneys, old brick facade, winding vines and green shutters can't be denied in New England. The setting sun lent a helping hand with a golden glow.

I need to show off Exeter a little more often. It's a small city, but charm and history abound.

Judy said...

In your list of what is so great about this shot, you forgot to mention the tree! I think that is an essential part of the composition!!
Hurray for clear skies!!!

Judy, for some reason the tree was bothering me. I tend to have a mind that likes symetrical things, though I know that's not what works best in photography.

Thanks all!

Sharon

Wonderful! I got off work at 4:15 and the full moon was already high in the sky, way to the north. It was a beautiful sight, especially because we have had such bad weather last week.
