Yesterday marked the 41st anniversary of the first moon landing. Due to the storms here in Denver (you might have read about the severe turbulence experienced by a United Airlines flight last night caused by that front) I was unable to snap any images of one of my favorite subjects… the Moon.
I grew up in the age of Apollo, and have been fascinated with the Moon ever since. Too bad today’s, or tomorrow’s youth for that matter will not have similar heroes to look up too like I had, Armstrong, Aldrin, Conrad, Bean, Shepard, Schmidt, Cernan… etc
So tonight, even though we still had a few clouds lingering, I snapped a few images of our nearest celestial neighbor, one our Administration has decided does not warrant a visit to anytime in the next quarter century. Too bad, it holds many mysteries yet to be discovered by someone… China maybe?
Nikon D80 using a Nikkor 70-300mm VR lens (f/13 or so) on a tripod, with a remote shutter release, on a exposure delay (to avoid as much shake as I could) for those interested in the details.

The 50th anniversary will come and go. All the fist moonwalkers will be buried and their headstones in place...
If you are 37 years old NOBODY has walked on the moon in your lifetime.
