Photo Friday Challenge - Blur - Feb 10
The full moon. I've been trying to shoot the moon for years and years, unsuccessfully so. I held my breath and shot this standing up at the entrance to the upstairs verandah as the moon rose above the palm trees. The exposure was about 7 seconds long, a very long time to hold perfectly still and not breathe. You can see the trees moving in the shot. It probably worked this time because just to the right of me, the big light was on in the police yard, and the park was all lit up with a children's valentine's party put on by the Caye Caulker Village Council. United Nations Baby went with the babysitter while Middle Child Syndrome and I worked. She came back with a pocket full of candy and a new toothbrush.
