Moon Shot Rotated


I always love taking photos related to the moon. I don't quite get the hang in getting the sharpest picture as I have been using teleconverter to get closer to the view of the moon. And any post processing in cropping adds to the degradation on image quality. The moon reminds me of a love story in Chinese about a legendary romantic story with a lovely couple who had flung to the moon and lived their romantic lives together. I don't remember exactly the story but part of it was sad leading their departures to the moon. My teenage years celebrated the mid-autumn festival with my Chinese family in Macau and it was a festival not to be missed. It was always filled with fragrance that my mom put fragrance powder in an alter honoring the story along with tasty food as in moon cakes and desserts. The mystic stories of the legendary couples adds to the joy of Mid Autumn Festival for Chinese.

I will suggest my readers to take a pause in the middle of the night and find the moon to appreciate its sheer beauty at night. Best to hold hands with your loved ones if they are there with you. It can become an enlightened moment only you and your other half can unfold the love story you both see in the moon.

I cann't believe the picture is taken by you. It is just like the pictures that we saw on the book. Thanks or sharing. Ethan recently learned about the solar system and moon. I will show him your picture and he will be amazed. THANKS for sharing the story of the mid autumn festival, too.
