Summer Moon

10 pm, last night. The rain had stopped for three hours, and we finally saw a full moon over Beetley. I went outside with my camera, but this was the best I could get, at 200 mm full zoom.
It is a poor photo of the Moon, but the point was that this was the first time it had been visible for over a week, due to the low black clouds finally disappearing. And it was still light, even at that late hour.

Next door’s cat spotted me, and came for a stroke. Alfie knows me well, as I feed him when they are away, and he likes to play with Ollie too. I call him ‘Alfredo Cat’, and he recognises his name. But he wasn’t exactly in the mood to pose for me, once he realised I had no food. So the photo is not in focus, as he kept moving.

After almost a week of rain, the simple pleasure of stepping outside with the camera is something to relish.

    1. Alfie is always hanging around outside our house. He likes to sleep in the plants on a raised bed. Whenever he sees me with Ollie, he always comes over for a stroke.
      The moon shot was awful, but I just wanted to show the cloud-free sky. Even though it didn’t last. 😦
      Best wishes, Pete.

  1. I can imagine how happy you were to see the moon, finally. I hope you’ll now have a chance to dry out.
    Have a great weekend,
    P.S.: And give “Alfredo Cat” a nicxe run behind his ears from me.

    1. I would have needed a tripod, and a much ‘lower’ Moon, Cindy. I mainly shot it out of excitement, to see a sky with no rain. πŸ™‚
      It didn’t last though, and it’s raining again now. 😦
      Best wishes, Pete.


  2. More rain on the way for you tonight I hear, we are melting here, but I will head your previous warning and not wish for any wet stuff πŸ™‚ We have storms forecast for next week so we will get our lot soon enough πŸ™‚
