The Moon was my treat tonight, Howlloween in bassethoundtown 2009!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and 2009 Howlloween lovers. I really thought that we would have a huge year of kids trick or treating, but it was not that active. The one thing that was active was the Moon! It was popping in and out of the clouds all night and put on the most incredible show! My camera is not that great but I tried to capture the Moon in all of it’s Halloween glory. This was the first shot as the sun was setting!


I took it right inside of my door way where we were waiting for the trick or treaters!


Grandma is with the kids and they really want a Reece Cup. NO WAY! No Chocolate for hounds….

I mean it! (I had a few cubes of cheese for them!)


Then I went out side to try to see the moon better. I turned around to see Chaps somewhat miffed that I had left him!


But check this Moon shot out! It was not zoomed in on but just stunning!


If you look at the door in the previous shot, you can see the same color of the sky reflecting back on the door. It was so cool. What a great night. Very magical.

I took about 50 shots with the zoom and they did not turn out with this lighting. You can see Chaps and Emma, trying to see what I was doing outside.


Then, I got this shot. Can you imagine if I had a great camera how good I would be? LOL!


It was just so HALLOWEEN! Chilly, almost full moon, and Chaps and Emma Howling. PERFECT!

More howling at the Moon later…Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Your last photo is just perfect for Howlloween. It is grainy and mysterious. Just what a ghoully night needs.

    I think your photos are terrific, but instead of a camera I would rather have a telescope on nights like this.
