Moon, still up in the early morning…

On another bitterly cold morning, I went to one of the Bedza paddocks, esp to take photos of a dead Mswilli, or ironwood tree. However, when I got there, I realised there wasnt a photo.

Instead, I got some of this thorn tree and the moon behind.

This is looking westwards.

Windy Night…

This dead tree is in the driveway, and looked very dramatic with clouds scudding across the sky behind.  The wind was blowing SO hard, I struggled to hold the camera still. This is my first effort at long exposure night photography Рably assisted by my brother in law Рto be honest, all I did was press the time delay shutter!!!

Slightly different angle…but I don’t like the strong light from the left in this photo

 

The Supermoon…

If I’d kept up with the news more, I would have made some effort to get out somewhere special to take pics of the Supermoon…P1220729.JPGLuckily someone got hold of me to let me know about it!

I DID get out there when it was fairly low in the sky. This is taken through the bare branches of a jacaranda tree on the roadway outside our house in Suburbs.

I thought the red reflection that wobbled about would mess up my pics, but actually, it enhanced several of them.

And this one, (above) is weird – I don’t know if I moved the camera at the last moment, but it almost looks like a painting (OK, like one of MY paintings!!!)

I think this last one is probably the best “Super-Moon” photo – huge behind the jacaranda tree.

All photos taken in Suburbs, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
