Cellpic Sunday — 12/18/22

John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device. I thought this might be fun so I decided to join in.

I can never get a good photo of the full moon with my iPhone. Every time I try, the moon just looks like a bright, white blob in the sky. No craters. No man in the moon. It’s frustrating. So when I took this photo of the moon in the southern sky as the sun was setting in the west at around 8:30 pm in July 2021, I was pleased that, if you look closely, you can actually see some of the yellow moon’s features.

Don’t believe me? Okay, here’s a cropped version of that same photo. Now do you see the man in the moon smiling back at you? Come on, use your imagination.

If you wish to participate in this fun cellphone photo prompt, please click on the link to John’s post at the top of my post to see his photo and to read his instructions.

    Good job with your composition; the camera picked up a lot of the lunar detail. Nice work!

    Yeah! That happens to me too when I try to photograph the moon! I’m amazed this isn’t the sun just screened by clouds and fog. And the shot is so pretty! Congratulations

    I would say the moon would be hard to photograph! ❤ glad you finally got a decent picture of it!

    The colours of the sky are wonderful. Just like a painted sky 🙂

      Did you drop some acid, Don?

        No acid really. I saw him wave. He said his name was Loony. I said nice to meet you. We couldn’t shake hands though…..
