Moon and clouds over Mtlawleyshire

What with cloud cover and working, the moon has been hard to catch – and there were those clear nights when I must’ve missed it altogether.  But I have been able to catch a few shots of the moon & a few interesting clouds.

Most of the clouds come with the sunset, but a few I’ve been able to separate.  The most spectacular of these were on the 17th of March – the first time I’d seen the moon and by no means a wee sliver of silver.  But stunning because of the clouds around that evening:

The new quarter sailed in and out of one particular cloud:

quarter moon

was covered in light vapour

within a sunsetty cloud

and then – this:

The 18th March was a fairly speccy sunset in West Perth, but that’s another post.  Here are some interesting pre-sunset clouds (it was a working night) over West Perth, and the moon:

It was a quiet night 🙂

The 21st of March was a very clear night & I timed it well.  Moon over MtLawleyShire:

The 22nd of  March, a working night, and the break was perfectly timed – Moon in West Perth:

The 23rd of March – the moon over Beaufort Street:

& yes, I hope to get more of the moon, but thought you might enjoy these.  Some are clearer than others.  And they are all in the very early evening as the moon is rising quite early at the moment.

Not many clouds, but they will happen in the next post – Sunsets.
