Wow, amazing! You caught the colors perfectly, with that glowing orange halo. With the empty tree branches, it looks rather spooky. :)

Greetings May.

The moon setting slowly with its eerie glow leaving the night-sky to its inky blackness.

Pleasantly romantic and moody image. Good job.

Warm wishes.

Tiopepe, Ryan, Hamzars, Jim, Rodríguez, Paul, thank you all so much for visiting "my" moon and for your kind comments!

When I got up and went into the kitchen to prepare my breakfast, I was stunned to see this bright fire ball at the horizon,as Tiopepe put it, because I usually don't see it in the morning. I ran to get my camera and just caught it in time, before it vanished beyond the horizon. I didn't have time to put up a tripod and just shot it out of my hand from the kitchen window, only holding the camera to the window frame to get a bit of stability.

Hamzars, that's what I thought as well, beautiful sight and frightening at the same time, as you, Ryan put it, this fireball looked spooky and with those branches and the orange halo impressing.

Thank you Jim for your poetry! Rodríguez, I feel flattered by your words. Paul, though it was in the morning, it could well have been an evening view.

My best greetings, saludos to you all, my friends,

Das ist ja ein sensationelles Foto, May! Ich hätte auch gedacht, das ist die Sonne. So einen riesigen Mond hab ich noch nie gesehen. Nur gut, dass du deine Kamera schnell zur Hand hattest! Liebe Grüße, Anne

Jetzt zauberst Du aber, May, das ist -abgesehen vom goldenen Stern- ganz klar ein Fall für "best of"!!! :-O Grüße, Peter

Anne, danke schön! Ja, der Mond beim Untergehen und am frühen Morgen war schon was Besonderes! Liebe Grüsse, May

Peter, Ganz herzlichen Dank für den Stern und das Best of! Zum Glück war ich früh auf an jenem Morgen, dieser Mond war nun wirklich nicht zu übersehen. Herzliche Grüsse, May

Grazie, Marco! Mi fa molto piacere una stella gialla da te! Ciao, May

Grazie Valerio! E proprio vero come dice tu e Marco, non se pensa que da noi possiamo vedere la luna así! Ciao, May
