The waxing moon

In view of my Skywatch contribution last week, I  photographed the last quater of the moon on Saturday. The photo above was taken at 6:44:09

The two photos above were taken at 6:44:54

  1. Hi Jo, These are really great moon pictures.
    How is the new kitty cat?

  2. What is neat is when I look at the moon ---and you look at the moon---it makes me feel as if we are not that far apart!!!!!! Love your moon picture, Jo.

  3. Hi Betsy;) I agree! We're part of God's amazing creation and will be together one day by the undeservwed grace of His Son's sacrifice for those of us who choose to follow Him. Have a wonderful day, my friend. (((Hugs))) Jo

    Hi Sunny;) thanks; Kitty is very well and still unnamed! Blessings Jo

  4. It's true the moon is world wide. You've captured that sliver well.

    Still no name for that kitty?

  5. Such beautiful moon shots, Jo! And, yes, they do make me feel too as if we're not that far apart! How wonderful! Glad the new kitty is doing well! Have a wonderful weekend!


  6. Wonderful moon shots, Jo! Have a great weekend and happy skywatching!

  7. Such fantastic captures of the moon. Love all the images.

    Have a great weekend.

  8. Hello Jo,

    A compelling photo of the waxing moon! I cannot seem to take enough pictures of that creation in the sky.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and introducing yourself so that I might be here. You asked 'how you could follow': at the bottom of the page.

    I have lingered here and enjoyed reading your words; the kitten is irresistible and indeed found 'you'. Blessings and see you soon. ;)

  9. nice pictures of the moon! I love the moon so much and thanks for sharing them on your blog.

  10. Jy neem pragtige foto's!
    Winter kom nader, maar het gelukkkig nog heerlike dae (3˚C min. - 23˚C max.) ♥de, Ida

  11. Not so easy to take good pictures of the moon and you catched it very well ! In Egypt the moon looks like that too, in Europe it stands up. I remember a little boy looking at the half moon and said to his mother, look mom, the moon is sleeping !

  12. Ohhh, I love the moon! I really like how beautifully you captured it in those photos.
