ISO 400, F/10, 180 SECONDS, 10mm
  Well, it's been a while since I've posted on blog site. The reason has been because an anonymous person has been using it to post comments trying to draw attention to his/her site. They didn't have anything to do with the pictures I was posting or anything that I was writing about on the blog.
  Hopefully, to put a stop to this I have deleted all of his comments and then made any further comments moderated by me in an email notification to approve or disapprove. I hate the inconvenience of this for my friends that actually come on the site and comment on the blog itself, but it is the only way short of deleting this one and creating a new one to try and stop all the nonsense.
  My picture that I have posted on the blog is of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in the Outer Banks, NC. We (Curt Fleenor, John Deas, my brother Jim, and me) were there trying to capture star trails around the lighthouse. The full moon was really adding a new curve to the process by coming up over the Atlantic Ocean to the east. I wanted to see what kind of image could be created by going to the opposite side (west) of the lighthouse and eclipsing the moon behind it. It ended up being a very cool and unique shot. Especially with the clouds flying by and being lit up by the moon behind the lighthouse. It was so bright that the lighthouse was even somewhat lit up in it's own shadow.
  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment if you like.


  1. This is fabulous, Jerry! LOVE those clouds! Sorry you're having to deal with someone who sounds quite obnoxious, but glad you seem to have it sorted out. We (I'm speaking for your fans, here!) look forward to seeing more. :)

  2. Thanks Erin. Really appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

  3. So glad to see you back again, Jerry, and what a way to do it! Lovely shot here, my friend, great colors and hues, and I just love the lighthouse and how it adds a smidge of romance to the overall scene here!

  4. Thanks Toad. So glad that you stopped by and commented. Always a pleasure to here from you bud.
