The new January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares, is all about ____light. In this often dull month light of any kind is what we all need to lift our spirits as we wait impatiently for spring to begin.
Monday’s waxing gibbous moon taken with my phone at 16:14. Waxing means that it is getting bigger. Gibbous refers to the shape, which is less than the full circle of a Full Moon, but larger than the semicircle shape of the Moon at Third Quarter. With some exceptions, the Waxing Gibbous Moon rises during the day, after noon.
moonlight (noun) = the light of the moon.

Fantastic . . . Clare will be very happy to see your moon and the description. She has a thing about the moon!
Tried to get a reflection of the full moon last night in the roof of my conservatory, not great…
I tried to take a shot too, but just couldn’t get the angle because of all our trees!
I find shooting the moon never works because of the flare, but a reflection often does.
That’s true, not sure my birdbath would have been enough last night!
Lovely Moon shot, Jude. And Gibbous is a great word!
Best wishes, Pete. x
Isn’t it just? Nice to be able to get it into a sentence 🙂
Its a great photo of the moon!
Thanks Aletta, a surprise shot!
Well caught, that moon.
Wow, brilliant gibbous capture, Jude!
I wasn’t sure how the phone would cope with such a zoom, but it is probably better than my camera! A bit shaky though. I struggle taking photos with a phone.
I’ve never tried taking images with a phone……I’m the old-fashioned “no use unless it has a viewfinder” sort….
Doubly important now, because I need to brace the camera against my body, or everything would be an unintentional blur
I think that is the challenge as I am also used to a viewfinder and it does help stabilise the camera.
So you won’t stop using a camera yet?!
Oh, goodness no. I just take the phone on our daily walks as there is nothing new here to photograph, but if I do see something then at least I can have a shot at it. Actually it has a very good camera and I have been playing with aperture settings on it!
I have way too much shake on my phone camera if I zoom even a little bit. 😦 I do like to see the moon in a blue sky mid-afternoon though. A common enough sight here at the moment. This is a super image 🙂 🙂
Thank you kind lady 🙂
That’s very good for a phone!
It’s a good phone! Bought specifically for the camera.
