This week's theme is inspired by Dr Seuss' "A great day for UP" which I have read, and have had read to me, for the umpteenth time tonight.

Up ladders, up in the sky, up on a shelf, up a hill .. anything, just use the word UP as your inspiration

98% Totality. Lunar Eclipse, Edmonton Alberta February 20, 2008 (from my driveway). I am surprised I got anything at all, since it was about -30 Celsius that night and generally, batteries don't work very well at those temps! Sorry about the lack of clarity, my camera is not meant for pix of outer space. Anyway, this is about as far UP as I can submit lol.

That's an awesome pic, Jackeroo! I've tried capturing the moon before and all I get is a blurry dot

Ty, but just so you know, I had about 20 blurry pix to every ONE that looked sort of okay. I've found you need to put your camera on a tripod and if you have "night" settings, try that mode. Ultra zoom too if you have it. There's a weird delay, because the camera is trying to let more light in, you just have to try not to jiggle the unit when you press the button. Trust me, if I can do it, anybody can : )

Love that moon. Up in the clouds, looking down somewhere over Asia.

I thought it was in the colder temps that they don't work too well?

well minus 30 C is fairly chilly (about minus 23 Fahrenheit). If the average winter temp in Australia is colder than that, I guess I'll give up my dream of going there lol

Jakeroo, that is a stunning shot! You must be very proud of that one. Extra kudos for braving -30ēC, too! I'm with PDAZ, all I ever get is a blurry dot. :/

Slightly better than a blurry dot, this is a Nighthawk sailing up over Phoenix.

Of course it does Jack's lovely!

My pink roses decided to send a branch climbing up the side of the house, and have made me look UP to see these lovely blooms at the top of my window.

My first post in the Photography section of this site. This was at Falcon Field in Mesa, Arizona. Not a bad sight to see when looking up.

A beautiful sight. Welcome pyonir.

Jack is a adorable TWs. Good to see you around again.

Quegequox, what a lovely shot of the Himalayas. I bet that was an exciting trip!

Aww, what a sweetie Jack is! It looks like he's asking to be picked 'up'.

Sliz, what a lovely contrast of the delicate pink and glossy green against the deep blue and white white white.

Welcome pyonir! What a beautiful golden sunset. Looking forward to seeing more of your photos.

He was only a mad puppy at the time and I think he wanted to eat the camera.

Here's a shot of a worker sweeping dead leaves while up on the roof of the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam. Like Pyonir, this is also my first post to the photo forums. I recently acquired a new Canon, so hopefully it won't be my last!

Lovely picture, jmorrow, and such beautiful colours in your sunset, pyonir.

Looking UP at a plantation of betelnut trees.
