Moon and Max

School has started so Max and I are up early again.  This is what we saw at 5:30 this morning, a gorgeous, full Moon.




The Moon was setting, and just five minutes after these pictures were taken it was down behind my neighbors house.  It was a magical morning, even if it was very early.

Max does not like getting up this early, but he loves smelling around first thing in the morning, seeing who has visited during the night.

Enjoy your day.

Impressive photos Meredith. I don't think I have ever seen such a wonderful photo of the Moon before at least not the Florida moon :-)

Hugs for Max

The moon WAS beautiful last night. I have yet to get a good moon photo though. I really should read the book that came with the camera. I'm sure I could do much better with a little book learnin'!

Have a great new work year.

I adore pictures of Max. He looks like such a gentle dog and very happy with his lot in life. :-)
My MIL and I were looking at the full moon last night from our deck. It was so beautiful and a very quiet evening as we sat there and talked.
Beautiful pictures Meredith.
Blessings,

Your moon pictures are brilliant. We had a moon very similar to yours at 9.30pm here this evening, it looked huge and so bright, seemed to really light up the garden.

Max is looking his usual handsome self.

I love that time of morning, so peaceful and quiet, and look at Max, he seems a bit sleepy eyed at the early hour, but all is good. Just look at that moon! Nice pics......

Wow love the photos! Great shots of the moon and your pup is also very adorable. He reminds me of Shadow from the movie Homeward bound :)

Monica said...

Oooh beautiful Max! And my, your shots are amazing!
Last night, I woke up in the middle of the night to a light entering the window... and was so surprised because here we have no lights during the night. It was a fabulous (not full) moon! Oh my, I had to go to the bathroom window to admire the gardens and fields in the moonlight! It was magical.
Big hugs dear Meredith, I just wanted to pop by and say hello! :)
