Super shot, I have always had huge trouble getting one that I'm happy with. Did you use a telephoto lens with good length? Cheers, Jean.

Wasn't it lovely? I'm glad I already posted my "moon shot" so it doesn't seem like I copied you totally. (Except your picture is better.).

Was this Nikon or Cannon? Amazing shot, especially hand-held!! It also looks like orange, especially if look from the south polar region.

Whew, I got my corn planted on or around May 25!
Did you know for the last two days you could see Venus, Saturn, and Mars lined up at just about sundown in the western sky. It was raining and cloudy here... blick.

Just dropping by...
