About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

I am sharing a few moon photos with ya and after each one I will write a bit about whether I enhanced it or not.

all I did to the above photo was to enhance the edges, which came out looking like this.  I have to believe all those specks in the background are something in the night sky.  I got rid of any digital noise before I enhanced the edges.

I didn't do anything to the above photo...I just got lucky considering I didn't use a tripod.

This one, I tried to brighten the moon and this is how it turned out.  I kind of like the effect but don't care for the yellowish color.

Hope you were able to see the moon for yourself!

    Love those shots. I live in the city with trees in the way for getting moon shots. I need to plan better and be in the country as the moon is rising.
