Default NY moon

Imagine that. The moon looks the same at my new home as it did at the other : )

Nice shot, love that you've caught the shadow line across those craters. Much more interesting than a full moon.

It's always harder than you think, unless you practice, getting the light right on a moon shot. It's like shooting a light bulb. Well done.

Steven, shot was handheld leaning up against a tree, 70 300 on the 510
Usually comes out a tad better with the tripod, not as steady as I was 50 years ago : )

Thanks Fred, got some family members taking a vacation to your backyard in a couple weeks. They can't wait to see that majestic country.

Your new home is only missing a half of the moon :-)
Nice picture Eric.

Maybe he should have moved so the tree didn't block it.

Eric, I've been meaning to ask, where did you move to?

Thanks Lordje, yep only half the moon missing, kinda like my paycheck since I retired : )
Ted, the plan was Pennsylvania but ended up near Whitney Point, upstate NY. Closer to the family and especially the grandsons who were growing up without us. Taxes and housing are a third of where I was so retiring with a fixed income that comes into play. Close to a lake so I bought a boat and took the grandsons for a ride : )

I can see why you'd want to be near them - what a cute pair of boys! Who's that old fart holding them? The guy can't even work up the energy to shave in the morning?

(I can say that only because I'm not retired, albeit envious of anyone who is.)

PS: I never understood why western New York is called "upstate".

Western NY is Buffalo, upstate is anything from like Binghamton on up. Downstate is Middletown and below towards the city. I'm sure there's a drawn line just like the equator has but I haven't found a map that shows it yet : )
