Buck Up!!


Tonight was the Full Buck Moon, and these are the pictures I just got! The lines you see across it are thin wisps of clouds. It is called this because now is when the buck deer antlers come out. It is also called the full thunder moon because this month is usually when there is the most thunderstorms. I kinda like the thunder name better, how about you?


"Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth. He unleashes his lightening beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back. God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding." Job 37:2,5

Ginny, you always get the most gorgeous moon photos. The name Thunder Moon does seem to fit, we had thunderstorms earlier in the week and there is a chance of some this weekend.

I'll be telling you more about my header photo later, glad you liked it.

Mildred said...

Great pictures.

DawnTreader said...

Even with my new camera I still can't get pictures of the moon as good as this.

I'm with you--thunder moon sounds better. Gorgeous photo! Were you and Phil zooming around town to get the best shot?

Have a great weekend.

Best,
Bonnie

Yump-n-yiminy, now that is what I call a full in your face moon. Awesome photos!!! We had clouds so I missed our full moon.

I hope you have a wonderful day and stay cool.

I did not know these names of the moon. Beautiful moon pic

Fred Alton said...

I was totally in the dark about the names "Full Buck Moon" and "Thunder Moon". However, I will remember "Buck Moon" because I'll be looking for that buck with his antlers out very soon now!

George said...

You got great pictures of the Thunder Moon (I do like that name better). We've had heavy cloud cover and rain for the past two nights, so I haven't been able to get any pictures. Maybe tonight.

Mary said...

What gorgeous photos, Ginny. You've perfectly captured the moon and made it appear mysterious and alluring at the same time. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Hi Ginny, I'm with you on the name. Great Scripture. You really know how to pair your Scripture with your post. Have a wonderful day!

There were a couple of little bucks in the yard the other night ... their antlers are covered with fuzz this time of year.

Chatty Crone said...

The full buck moon - I didn't know that!

LC said...

Wonderful photps, words and related Scripture! What kind of camera do you use?

Stephanie V said...

I'm more likely to experience the thunder than I am the deer antlers. Great photos.

photowannabe said...

Great shots of that Thunder Moon.
I think it was peeking in my window the other night. It seemed like daylight.
Wonderful thought for the day too.

Jane said...

These are really gorgeous photos! Everytime I visit blogs, I am reminded that I need to get something other than a point-and-click camera!

Truly amazing moon shots. I never can get any to look like this. Probably the camera has a lot to do with it. My sister works in a Hospice Hospital and says when it it s a full moon the patients are worse.

Bobbi said...

I always love your moon pictures!!!

srp said...

I just wish there had been a little more thunder and rain this week. The big storm that came down from your area simply divided in two and half went to the west and half went to the east in Va Beach and we got nary a drop.

Regina said...

Wow, you caputured the moon tonight (just incredible) and the beautiful sky tonight!! These are terrific and I remember that but enjoy hearing it again. It's been pretty clear or at least that I could see it and marvel. Powerful verse and love your pretty header-

Kerrie said...

Ginny, I had so much fun catching up on your blog in these wee small hours of the morning! I hadn't been able to access your blog for weeks and missed seeing your beautiful photos and your writings! Have a most wonderjul Sunday. Hugs, K

Ann said...

I learned something new today. I didn't know about the full buck moon. Those shots are awesome. What kind of camera are you using?

Sandra said...

i vote for thunder moon, it is beautiful and so are the photos. friday am at the gym the wispy clouds were covering the thunder moon and it was showing through slits in the wisp and i wished for you to grab a shot.

Stacey Dawn said...

Thunder Moon- nice ring to it.
Great captures... wow!
We didn't get to see it here... raining!

Rose said...

Wonderful moon shots! I have never gotten any this good.
