Moon Behind Palm Tree

I just got back from a nice warm place (the Palm Springs area), so here's a shot of last week's full moon behind a palm tree for Skywatch Friday.
This was a hard shot to get handheld with my Nikon D40X, which isn't a great camera for low-light photography (and it's old so it's starting to develop too many hot pixels). It's occasions like this that make me wish I had a D7000, which is much better at capturing images like this. But I'll work with what I've got!


  1. This is an awesome shot, Al, old camera or not! Took my breath away this morning for sure! Glad you were able to enjoy some warm weather in California! Hope your week is going well!


  2. It's godd you are working up with what you're having.. if not, we never could be able to see this beauty of a picture! Stunning! =)

    I too have discovered one dead pixel in my camera.. :/

  3. godd?? haha

    *good* that should be.. ;)

  4. Oh lovely -- glad you got some warm sunshine -- nice contrast.

  5. It's very nice, though! I don't have any fancy camera equipment and I hate moon shots look like dots! :-)

    Palm trees always remind me of holidays.
