Photo Hunters~ Dark

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Several weeks ago, The Sugar, Hubby and I went camping. I have yet to share the photos of that trip....sigh....too much to do. When I saw the theme for this week, it gave me a gentle push to edit the photos from that trip. I had luckily taken a few photos when it was DARK outside.

I always enjoy photographing fire. There is just something about a fire. It has a really unique beauty to it. So fascinating to me. I have been a bit of a pyro since I was young. I wasn't the type to start a fire...but it there was one already, I wanted to watch it for HOURS!

Another love of mine is the moon. What a beautiful feature of our universe. WOW! I am excited to finally have a camera and a lens that can do it justice.

This one was an experiment. I wanted to catch a bit of a tree to make a silhouette in front of the moon.

I now need to track when the next full moon is, and play some more.

Thanks for visiting my blog this week. I look forward to seeing everyone's DARK photos. Have a great weekend!

The shot of the fire on the charcoal is pretty awesome. Beautiful capture of the moon as well. Darkness without the light from the moon would be .... *gulpz*

Happy Weekend Corey and Sugar!

The Mom said...

So neat, those fire shots are so dang crisp! Love the moon!

Yen said...

WHOA! Those are amazing photos! I love the moon shots:) Happy PH!

SASSY MOM said...

Fantastic photos. Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend!

Carver said...

Those are wonderful shots. I love the moon and fire so these were a treat for me. Great job.

leslie said...

I love all these shots. And like you, I can get absolutely hypnotized staring into the fire. I remember years ago when the kids were young, my husband would build a fire every night we'd spend at the cabin. Then he'd serenade us with his guitar. Sweet memories.

Susie said...

I love the pics of the fire. Even though fire is one of my deepest fears-I love to stare at it. It's one of my fave things to do on a chilly Oct. afternoon wrapped in a blanket holding a good book, or a laptop of blogs.
The tree in front of the moon reminded me of E.T.
I love how much detail you captured on the moon too-that is very cool.

I am waiting to get a new camera before I jump into the world of photography, but in the meantime am completely enjoying these pictures!
Your dark pics are AWESOME!

I knew you would do awesome! I love the moon shots. I am waiting to see how mine turned out (they are uploading)...they will be bad! If they are THAT bad, I might not even participate this week!
