Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

The moon was up, but it wasn't quite dark yet when I took this picture of the paraglider almost directly over my head. I had to take it quickly because he was moving pretty fast and I was surprised that it turned out reasonably well. I was just lucky to get the moon in the shot too! Since posting this I have found two other blogs with similar pictures of paragliders posted today here and here. To see more beautiful skies from around the world, please visit SkyWatch Friday.

Very impressive! Good, quick clicking on your part!
Sydney - City and Suburbs
This is a wonderful capture, Lois! Just perfect.
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
Good going catching the paraglider and a full moon in the same shot.
Wow! What a great shot Lois. That looks a little scary up there.
Terrific capture, Lois! I love it! Really perfect timing! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Great capture! I like that the moon and the paraglider seem to be at the same level.
I know just how difficult the shot must have been ... I have a similar one too :)
Care to look ?
Wow, the paraglider looks so close to the moon! Beautiful shot :)
great capture with the moon in line with the glider
This is a remarkable shot.
I bet you have now inspired other hang gliders to position friends with cameras at locations where the camera angle might catch both them and the moon.
Lucky? It's really special!wonderful moment, I'm envious here, I would like to have this opportunity as well! Congrats!
nice shot, looks like hes trying to fly away to the moon.
If this was on one of our very windy days as of late it's a wonder you captured him at all!
Cool picture! I hope he got down before it got too dark.
Timing is everything. Very nice.
Love it! That shade of blue is very interesting
Your shot is awesome, Lois. You captured the moon and glider perfectly.
Well done, my friend :)
Incredible, Lois. You were quick and steady! Perfect juxtaposition of moon and glider!
At first I thought the glider looked a bit like a very large spider!
The trick for sky watch is to find something interesting up there and I thin yours is one of the most funny and unusual catches!
very great shot. this is not the scene we can capture every month. the paraglider fly higher than the moon, nice..
Happy weekend everyone,,
Awesome Shot Lois. Surprises are always fun. MB
Nice shot. I like it a lot.
Holy Cow, Lois! Now THAT'S a shot!!!
That is such an exceptional shot, Lois, how lucky can you be. 10 out of 10.
Nice capture. I never have been able to get action shots that came out well.
What a cool shot! You are so fortunate to have captured it....wow, you had to be fast on the shutter button! Way to go! :)
The Moon isn't stolen :(
(Well, in Poland widely know is the book (and the movie) for children "About two, who stole the Moon". The movie is also popular, because one of the two (brothers) was today's president -- Lech Kaczyński. When I saw this photo, I thought about the stolen Moon ;) )
The right time! Fantastic, Lois, great capture!
Oh wow, excellent!
Right place, right time - Beautiful shot!
Darryl and Ruth : )
It's a BEAUTIFUL shot, Lois! I've wanted to do that for sooo long! Maybe someday!
