Moonset on the bay


Lately I'm not good at getting up and shooting the sunrise or sunset. Instead I prefer to stay in where it's cozy and warm, walking on the treadmill and doing my exercises for my back. However, Tuesday morning I could see the moon waning in the sky and thought it might be pretty to capture it as it set on the bay. So here we go.


Mind you I had no tripod with me


Looking right, opposite the moon



Geese were flying in repeatedly, that is until the sky started to lighten up a bit. It seems they prefer to travel in low light. Hmm... don't they know I'm trying to get a picturesque shot here?






And in a moments notice the moon slipped below the clouds on the horizon



Silly I know but this was my favorite shot. Just a simple gull flying through the air with an added texture





I've been trying to add work to my Redbubble and Society 6 websites. It takes a lot of time to set up photography websites, work on images and then post them, all the while trying to figure out if you're charging to much, to little, or what. Both sites seem to be quite good, though I suspect Society 6 has product that is a bit higher quality. I know they charge enough for their services! Holy cow! But, I guess that's the way it goes if you want someone else to do all the work, right?
  
I keep thinking about going back to Etsy



We had snow yesterday and rain this morning, which turned everything to ice. Seeing as how we are in the northeast though school was ON both days. We're hardy folk here in NH. Or stubborn. Could be a combination of both. Yes, I believe that's what it is. Ha haa!!!


Happy Friday all!

Thank you for heading out into the cold and taking these shots. WE have no snow, but the cold is certainly keeping me indoors. Hope that back is getting a bit better with the exercises. :-)

Love these images. Glad you're getting some exercise. I stayed in out of the snow showers today and the temps in the teens and twenties. Have a great weekend gal. Carol

So that's what morning looks like! I might actually get up early sometime. It sure is beautiful.

I agree with you. I love the seagull photo best.

Oliag said...

So So worth getting out there! I never did that's for sure:(

I have never tried to sell any photos and imagine it is not easy no matter what venue used....Good luck!

4th one down - ooo la la!! Beautiful, my friend. I don't sell much on etsy but then I don't market myself much either.

Always taken with your artist eye. I love all of them.
Good luck with the site. Quality always comes at a price so I wouldn't worry about the cost....but that's me.
Yes cold here too but heck it's been pretty nice so far. I do miss seeing a little snow.

hugs and stay warm

I love these moon shots...gorgeous! We finally had a coating of snow last night, but today it warmed up and rained, so it's all gone. Strange weather here in the northeast...very little snow, and I really don't mind it a bit! I'm already thinking spring!

I love moon shots and these are gorgeous, Sharon! I'm not a "getting-out-in-the-morning-to-get-the-shot" kind of girl - especially in winter!!! So I really admire your for capturing these!

Congrats on your new venture with Society6 & Redbubble!
