Computer Switchover

Two days ago, we were driving on the interstate at dusk, when the moon came up over the mountains. It was a beautiful sight, you can see here the layers of blue beneath the moon, also the line of cars. It was one day before the full moon, which is called the Snow Moon or Hunger Moon this month. I have been having problems with my computer, and am getting a new one delivered tomorrow. So I will be taking a very long weekend break while I learn the new computer and also the new operating system, and get everything switched over. I will not be posting or visiting till possibly Tuesday. I will miss you all and hope to see you soon!!!!


"Blessed by God be his land: The best fresh dew from high heaven, and fountains springing from the depths; The best radiance streaming from the sun and the best the moon has to offer; Beauty pouring off the tops of the mountains and the best from the everlasting hills; The best of Earth's exuberant gifts, the smile of the Burning-Bush Dweller.”
Deuteronomy 33

I love the layers of color in the fifth shot, and the moon over the traffic is hauntingly beautiful.

And a new computer, how exciting! Have a great weekend.

Interesting...have never heard of the snow moon. Reason being I am sure, is because we hardly ever have snow..
Best of everything with the new computer....I know changes (especially technology changes) can be a bit trying...I know you will get it all figures out quickly...What kind of computer are you changing to?
Have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend..

I too,am wondering what kind of computer you are getting. Have fun getting acquainted with it.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I switched out computers in the past couple of weeks myself. I still haven't gotten everything moved over! I also need to download some drivers so the printer will work. Frustrating, but I'll get to it eventually.

Lovely moon shots Ginny!

Sandra said...

can't wait to here how you like the new one, will be waiting to here from you. did you know you can export your favorites and your email addresses, send the file to your email address and it is so much easier, you can import them into the new computer, you can save the file on to a flash drive and them pick it up in the new computer, no more adding it all address by address.

Someone asked me if I saw the full moon. I said, "No, I always wait until my friend posts pictures of the full moon on her blog." You never disappoint! Thanks for sharing your photos! Have a good switchover week-end!

Hi Ginny, Made me chuckle because as I was taking my own pictures of the "Snow Moon", I was wondering in my mind if you were out there snapping away in your yard. Your pictures of the Moon are aways excellent! Have a great day tomorrow!

Great shots of the mountains under the moon-light. Your part of the world is most beautiful. Good on you for the new computer and wishing you the best in learning all the new twists. May all go smoothly.

Renee said...

Ginny, dont forget to enter my blog giveaway :)

Rose said...

Love the moon shots...
are you getting a laptop or a desktop computer? I am looking and looking at laptops...this one is about shot. I use my little netbook in the evening, but cannot do all my photowork there...so it is a pain.

Did you do research for new computer or just get one and hope for the best?

BlueShell said...

what a beautiful set of photos dear.
Thank you for sharing and thank you for your tender words.
Hugs

Hello Ginny! I just posted after a longish break. I'll be catching up with your older posts soon. Loved the way you've captured the long line of cars. As for the moon shots..as captivating as ever!! Hope you enjoy using the new computer!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I don't know how I missed this post! I just love your moon photos! Good luck with the new computer.

Love to have a camera like yours.

I am hoping to run the 1/2 marathon for Charity, for Sands. I don't know how I will go, that is why it is a secret agenda. But I am telling you.

I jog very very slow, you walk faster than I jog. 7 years ago, i hardly ran, but together with my girl friend, we did the 10 kilometer in 4 months. Now I have about 10 momths.
