marinsta December

Moon Phase: Waxing Gibbous Visible: 98,8%↑ Age: 13,7 days
Less than a day before January ends and this month’s second Full Moon: a Super Moon – Blue Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse!!!!!!
I’ve been offline most of January, as I’ve been swept by creative winds… hopefully I’ll be landing soon!  😉 I look forward to see what all my friends have been up to. There were many posts I’d planned on posting this month but art [and living for that matter] can be quite selfish and possessive. However I managed to sneak out for a bit to post my December [yep!] retrospective instagram shots.
My picks this month are six:
A lovely sunrise cloud An intricate frame of branches for a moon A bird making its flight towards the moon My tree knight with his feathered hat showing Athens to passers by A red / orange sunrise and An airplane following my lenses course on a foggy day.

Note: the photos on the tiled gallery are showing in random order, so every time the page refreshes, you see a different order.


Check out my Instagram account for updated shots.

Enjoy the majestic moon tomorrow!

ps. Art calls, but one way or another I will be responding, my dear dear friends!

    • I know what you mean and yep, they always win! 😉 Thank you, my friend. I’m gradually trying to merge the two [life and screens! 😉 ] Enjoy March, Phil! 🙂

    • Hi, my dearest Charlie! I was very glad to see you come back …full force! I’ve been offline for quite some time but now I’m back too! 😉 I know I won’t be disappointed! 🙂 🙂
      ps I’m not a photographer and I’m aware of my ‘flaws’ in my photos, but I do enjoy capturing things my eyes see and then compare the outcome with my memory of them.

      • Hi! Marina, glad you are back! and thank you for reading my work. Hope you enjoyed every bit of it. 🙂

        Not every photography is perfect. It’s all about how one captures the moment and feels the photography in their heart and soul that would make one happy.

        • Charlie, my dear friend, it is I who thank you for sharing your amazing talent… if that hasn’t answered your question: I enjoyed and enjoy every bit of your work, always! 🙂
          I agree with you remark on photography!

  1. The moon is waxing gibbous, and I’m waxing <gibbon… 🌒🌓🌔🌕🐵🙈🙉🙊👽😊

    Superb photos, O Camera Goddess! My favorite was the dove shooting the moon 🐔🌕, but I could really identify with that first photo, the surging fiery red clouds, because that’s exactly how I feel whenever I visit this blog… 😜🚀🌒🌓🌔🌕💥🚑👽👽👽👽👽👽😊

    • From waxing gibbous to waxing gibbous I go! 😉 Your words sent me where …”no man has gone before” for a full Moon cycle!

  5. You captured a wonderful January. Surprised to learn that you have snow in the distance!

    Many great pics … too difficult picking my favorite. Always love skies with orange, red, blues, white, and even grays.

    Hera knows how to pose!

    • Oh, she does too! She’s a natural!
      Yes, we do have snow in winter but this year we only had a few days of it just on the mountains surrounding Athens but no snow in the city. Maybe later. Still winter after all!
      Hope you enjoyed the eclipse! 🙂
      Thank you, my dear friend! Yamas! 🙂
