Wordless Wednesday - Unusual Moon Shots

Click for more Wordless Wednesday participants.

Thought for Today
"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die' so, let us all be thankful." Buddha

Wow! These are beautiful! Happy WW!

Karen said...

Awe-inspiring photos, Storyteller! And by the way, I've decided to join the Wordless Wednesday party, too--I entered name and link!

Phyl – I thought they were marvelous (and worth passing along) when I found them at Flickzzz. I’m glad you enjoyed them.

Lareine – Thanks … I wish my little camera could capture such shots!

Greatfullivin – Hmmm … Buddha did know how to put things in perspective didn’t he? Sorry I signed your Mr. Linky twice this morning … I must not have been fully awake but it’s possible I’m just ‘losing it’ period. LOL

CJ – You’re welcome. I’m happy you found them so. I enjoyed your wildflowers (and the sleeping pooch I missed in February).

Ivanhoe – Happy WW to YOU too! Thank you for including me on your Blogroll and for passing along the nifty award from ‘teach’ … I’m grateful.

Karen – Thanks … and I’m so happy you’ve decided to do this thing too. It’s a fun way to add ‘structure’ to the posting week and to meet new bloggers. I’ll be over to see in a little while. Have you sent your Message in a Bottle to Mimi’s blog yet?

I appreciate each of you visiting and sharing your thoughts today. If I’ve not been to your WW yet, I’ll visit soon. I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday!
Hugs and blessings,

Wow! Have I mentioned how much I love sky shots....that last one is just spectacular :)

I love the sky at night. Particularly with views just like those :)

Sandee said...

Wow, these are breathtaking. I love them all. Have a great WW. :)

Sorry about the duplication of my comment. I kept hitting refresh because it didn't seem to be loading. Won't ever do that again.

Anonymous said...

Wow (all of them are just WOW!)

storyteller said...

Sandy – I don’t know that you have mentioned that … but it’s nice to know ;--)

Sandee – I’m happy to know you found my WW and quote worth the visit … so thanks!

Betty - I love it!!! Been there … done this myself before. I could delete the extra ones but don’t think I want to (I’m glad YOU left them all) … especially in light of your explanatory post at the end. You’ve made me laugh this morning twice (once at your blog and again here) … and laughter is always a good thing indeed!

Secret Agent Mama – Perfect!!! Wordless … right?

What a delight to find all your comments and to know you enjoyed my Wordless Wednesday post (and quote) today. I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

Those are all stunning!!!!!

Love moon shots. Both the photographic kind and the old Apollo kind.

Hmm, I think we need to invent a drink called, "the Moonshot."

What awesome photos. I love the one where the wild geese are silhouetted against the moon. They are all great but that is my favorite.

Kat – I always enjoy what you share on your blog.

Az – I’m happy you liked these moon shots enough to come out of ‘lurk mode’ and leave a comment. Now I know where to find you.

For some reason I couldn't open your page earlier today. Glad I got in this evening. I love these shots. You may have figured out that I like pictures of the moon because I have posted a few I've taken. I think it's about time to head out and try for another one. Skies have been clearing - maybe I can get a good shot tomorrow.

WOW!! You have quite the eye for these pics!! Thank you for sharing!!

Nap Warden – Thanks, I thought so too!
