Indeed! The moon was bright enough, and yet low enough, that I had to lay flat on a rock so my shadow was not in the image. It was tough laying there watching the stars...

Thank you, David.
I have another BP friend from Mexico, so I've heard a little about the dangers, which is too bad; there are a lot of neat opportunities at night. There are places in the U.S. where I wouldn't dare go out at night, but where we are it is quite safe. You are wise to know what limits to follow, and adhering to them.

Photographing moonlit scenes and photographing the Aurora Borealis are two things I am very passionate about; it was neat to be able to get them in one image.

Thank you, Kim. Thank you Rita. I appreciate the compliments.

Rita, I'm glad you will be able to visit the U.P.; I think you will enjoy it. If you send me a PM before you come, I will try to let you know where the Autumn colors stand.

Thank you, Art. They say good things come in threes; I guess that fits this month. I'll be firing up the grill around 6:00; I'll be glad to throw another steak on if you want to stop by...
