MOON OVER COUPEVILLE

First I want to apologize for being absent most of the week but the weather has really been crappy and we had some appointments on the mainland that interfered with our walks. But this morning was a real sparkler with the full moon setting in the west.

First up, before we get to the moon, is this nice waterfront photo of Coupeville from the wharf with the sunrise starting to happen to the east.

Out on the wharf this seagull was just begging me to take his photo so I obliged.

This moon shot is through the old walnut tree that was planted by Capt. Thomas Coupe, Coupevilles namesake’s wife, back around 1860.

The moon was over the wharf and reflecting onto Penn Cove. I had hoped to get a photo with the moon closer to the horizon but the further down it went the fainter it became and was not to be.

But wait, what’s this?

OK, all together now, “Photoshop”! Yep I just couldn’t resist, I have the tools, I have the knowledge and I had the photos to work with. The only thing I didn’t do was put the reflection on the water. That process takes a lot of time and I’ve got better things to do.

Hopefully we’ll have a better week of walking next week and I hope you’ll all come along. In the meantime have a great weekend!!!
