About Me

My photo
We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Whoda' Thunk the moon looked so awesome

The night sky is loaded with beauty and photo opportunities.  If it's a clear night and the moon is not bright there are countless things to look at.  In fact I think "gaze" is a very fitting word.  As you look up at a dark sky filled with stars, you can't help but gaze.  I don't think there could be a better word than "GAZE".  If the moon is bright the stars are still visible but nearly like it is on a dark night.  All is not lost though as the moon is still quite cool at all phases.  Last night we were returning home from Oil Creek after a disappointing day with the Eagles of Oil Creek.  Didn't want to go home without a couple Megabytes of data on my big empty memory card.  As we neared our home I swung up a back country road that is great for big dark sky pictures without the distraction of ambient light.  We looked at the stars for awhile and watched a couple jets wander across the evening sky and then proceeded to capture a few shots of the moon.  The moon can look so amazing when it's pulled in close and personal.  The craters are invisible to the naked eye but when pulled in close they are quite visible.  Here's a couple shots from last night including one that I played around with to give my rendition of a Harvest Moon.  Whoda' thunk the moon could be so amazing!
