    A treat for Cranky!!

    On my way into work the other day, I noticed that the Charlotte Lighthouse had been decorated and was lit for the holidays.

    Well I finished my work week this morning and for once the sky was clear, all day in fact. As evening approached I packed up my good old Canon SX20is digital camera and Slik tripod and pedaled north. One quick mile later I was greeted by this lovely sight...



    To my mind, it is elegant in it's simplicity.

    As if the opportunity to enjoy pretending to be a photographer in peaceful but cold weather wasn't enough, I received a second thrill. I was treated to a Moonrise on this peaceful, cold, and clear evening. See? There it is just to the right of the lighthouse.




    I couldn't resist cranking this baby to it's full 80x digital zoom just to see what it could do...




    What can I say? I dazzle easily!!

    Nice. It is always relaxing to find something that stops the whirl of life if only for a moment.

    Nice pics Lenny, the moon's detail is great and the definition is super sharp. You take great scenery pictures on your commutes and rides.

    Nice shots, Cranky!

    I believe you have a photographic gene in your constitution.

    Great shot of the moon. It has been so bright the past 2 nights.

    Car or biking? While sunny, the temps and wind have been keeping me off the bike. Got out for a bit yesterday and I hope today and tomorrow.
