Dang, dang, dang...This is one of those moments when I wished I had the equipment to take the shot. I have an eye for photography, but the lack of equipment is killing me.

Picture this. I'm sitting on my porch about 10 minutes before my 46th birthday expires, and the full moon is hanging over a 30 foot tall pine tree...the fog has lifted over the field of soy beans in line of site and a hillside of pines, oaks, maples, apples, chestnut trees, etc...are shadowed in the backgound...man what a picture this could have been.

I deeply regret not having the right camera for this moment.

I feel that pain every single night :cry:

I live out in the countryside so i am surrounded by hills and fields and when you look outside one of my bedroom windows there is a field about quarter of a mile away and there is an old tree sitting right in the middle of this field (which is on a hill) and every single night the sky (in the summer) is quite bright and colourful. When you see this sillohette of a tree with the nice cloudy and sometimes clear colourful night you really just get such a nice feeling inside you.

I have seen some of the most beautiful pictures in my life from the windows of my house and if i had the right equipment i would probably have one of the best photography portfolios around...seriously :)

*sigh I am on the same feeling here, when I go out to the hills, I wish I could have a camera with me.

I hate not having a digital camera. I use my friends whenever I have the oppotunity, and always get him to being it whenever he visits.

Man, maybe it's just the fact that I was born in July and the moon holds some signifigance, but this is the whole entire reason I posted this. I now have another (most likely) full moon rising on the horizon, and it's coming up behind a bunch of cumulous clouds, and it's just gorgeous! *Atno prays for the day when I have the equipment that can take this picture!

Here we go, almost forgot about this ...

I call this whole set 'Canada Golden'
pictures were taken at a lake called 'Gold Lake' Ontario, Canada.


have uploaded them (again) to: http://www.webworksolution.com/pics/sunrise/index.htm

it was this one here, which I found the best: http://www.webworksolution.com/pics/sun ... gp0198.htm

... and had entered into a contest: http://www.picture.com/display.asp?ID=1432102

(but found later that everyone wins as their gimick is to send one
congratulation documents, where they wanted money to put it in a book)


hope you like ... my pics.

Thanks, I do think I got lucky on that one though as it was my first attempt of the second day of owning my new Camera.

I got that Camera in 2003, one evening before we headed out on a road trip the next morning.

I was playing around with the setting as you can see by the blue hue affects in some of the pics.

However ... I am very happy with them and was stunned myself with the outcome.
