SkyWatch Friday



More views from the top floor of one of the FSU parking garages. The first photo shows a partial view of downtown Tallahassee looking east. The tallest building is the 22 story Florida Capitol building, the smaller white building to its right is the Claude Pepper Building which houses state legislative offices, and on the far right is the 17 story Turlington Building which is the state headquarters for the Florida Department of Education. The other building on the far left is a condominium complex. All of those small white buildings in between are state office buildings. After I took the first shot, I decided to zoom in on the moon. That little white speck under it and to the left is a small airplane.

Linking to SkyWatch Friday.

I remember trying to get close on the moon at night with my first camera.

Nothing but black.

Great moon shot!

These are both superb photos. In the first one, I like the way those beautiful white buildings are sort of etched into the blue sky...and the 2nd moon shot, well, I never get good moon shots like that so kudos to you!

It is hard to capture the moon, but you did a great job here...

I wish you a very merry Christmas :)
