Best Shot Monday – 9/24/07

With today being the fall equinox, I had this great idea that I was going to take some cool pictures of the moon tonight. At 8 p.m. the moon was shining brightly and the sky was clear. The conditions couldn’t have been better.

By the time the kids were both asleep and I got my stuff (camera, lens, tripod) together to go outside and take pictures, it was 10 p.m., and, dun, dun, dun – the moon was nowhere to be seen. The clouds had rolled in. :(

Feeling hopeful, I got in the car and drove around for 40 minutes wishing for a break in the cloud cover. The break didn’t come.

Feeling defeated as I drove down Main Street, I decided I couldn’t go back home empty handed. I pulled out my camera and took a few shots with a 3 second shutter speed while I drove down the street.

So here’s my last-minute, definitely not the moon, but hey, at least it’s something “best shot.” ;)
