The Moon photo was taken with a compact camera set to 'Auto'. It was on full zoom (20x) and held in the hand. It's impossible to keep the camera steady on the subject under those circumstances, so I was surprised when the result had no motion blur and was in focus. I think this has to be put down to the good image stabilisation of the camera rather than me being in any way skilful. It is only a 'point and shoot' photo. I'm OK at doing that.
The photo has been cropped a lot and sharpened a little in an editing program before being posted here.
I've always thought the reasons for the Moon being seen in day are because the Sun is so bright, the Earth is not blocking the Sun's 'view' of the Moon and because the surface of the Moon is made of a light-coloured cheese that reflects the light.
There is a bit more to it than that according to research but I think that's about it in a sentence.
It was a lovely day here yesterday, so we went for a walk. Here is a view from that:
