Tropical Moons

For a while now, I 've wanted to take pictures of the full moon through the palm trees in my front yard. Tonight was the first opportunity when I was at home, the moon was full and in the right position. These are a couple of different views taken with my better digital camera. The effects are courtesy of Photoshop and an ounce or two of my own creativity. The orange light under the moon is the local street lamp filtered through the palm frond- it gives the images a bit of a surreal quality. That one at the top is especially freaky - I've saved it as my desktop wallpaper. The camera I used has a lot of resolution so it's a big image - see what happens when you click on it.
