Tree with Night Moon Photography


This is some fun I have been having with an app I have on my cell phone. The app is called Photo Editor Pro. It is a free app and I am enjoying experimenting with the various features.

This is a picture of a tree with the moon behind it. My 13 year old daughter and I took these pictures one night when we were running up to Walgreens to get something at night. We saw how beautiful the moon looked and we really liked that interesting tree.

The moon set behind the tree seemed like it would make a great picture, so we got our cell phones out and began to snap pictures. I love to do this with my daughter anytime we see a great photo opp. She loves the spontaneity of stopping whatever we are doing to take pictures. I have even pulled the car over to the next safe spot before. because she spotted a rainbow or a lovely sunset.

I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed taking them and editing them.

It is interesting how the moon came out bright, like a sun shining in the night.

Here is one edited to be black and white. This is one of my favorites.

A bit of Poetry to Lull you to Sleep or to Entertain Your Imagination

storm writing prompt

Human structures, man-made wires

Symbolic street signs, store front banners

Vehicles that often break, windows that crack

A fire escape painted red

A child napping in their bed

Telephone poles, landscaped bushes

But where do you see the real power 

in this photograph?

That has the say as to whether the houses 

will stay standing?

Existing all around us 

ready to destroy or to nurture?

To tear apart, or to caress

To sooth, or to flood with dominance…

Nature has the power to lull us to sleep

with her soothing sounds of rain…

To frighten us with her electricity 

that streaks violently with no harness

across the sky that we breath
