January Full Moon

FullMoonNewWashingtonSmall

Japhy Ryder and I went back to New Washington last January to see my Mom and Step-Dad and to get Japhy trimmed up so that he would not be mistaken as a bear cub. On the way home, I got out by Geissman’s Farm and saw the giant, low-hanging full moon. Lucky for me it was farm country, and we whipped the car off to the side of the road. I have never really been able to capture a good moon photograph, mainly due to a lack of a giant zoom lens-this is probably the best one I have shot, although in person, the moon was gigantic. I would have loved to have had a tri-pod for this shot, but sometimes you do the best you can with what you have.

This is another photograph that was shot a few weeks ago when the corn was just starting to turn, but was still mostly green.    I was back home last weekend and the corn is now brown and drying out, getting ready for harvest.

Fall is in the Air

Fall is in the Air

Fall is around the corner here in Ohio. We are getting little snips of it here and there. One fall day and then a few more summer days then back to another fall day. The air is starting to feel different and the nights are getting cooler. While writing this I just realized that this is the first day of fall. So I guess it’s officially here, although the rest of the week will remain in the low 80’s. But gradually the sweaters will come out, and then the coats. First for a day or a few hours….and then they will stay and our landscape will look nothing like the image above.
