Moonset over Los Piños mountains


This is the third in a series of what I call pajama shots – you can see the first and second pajama shots here and here.

pa•ja•ma shot n. a photograph taken while wearing pajamas, shortly after photographer awakens, looks out window, and stands agape at view. May or may not involve wearing of slippers, depending how fast photographer runs out door. Subject matter typically involves sun, moon, sky and/or breathtaking light.

Check out the links on the Skywatch home page to see if anyone else ran outside half naked this week in pursuit of a photograph.

  1. Awesome pa-ja-ma shot! If that was me I'd stand there in awe and totally miss taking such an incredible picture.

  2. Love the photo, love the concept--especially as I just came back inside in my sock feet and a creative early morning outfit. No cows out there to snicker, just the usual commuters who should be used to seeing me wandering around with the camera most mornings just before dawn.

    Beautiful moon shot!

  4. After seeing that ginormous spider on your porch, I think I wouldn't be walking out of the door without at least hipweighters from now on.

  5. What a beautiful sky! Lately, I've been doing a lot of those 'pajama shots' too. I just can't get over how gorgeous our mornings (and evenings) have been here in the Southwest USA!!

  10. The moon this week was spectacular and we had clear skies as well.

    I still don't have a camera, I wish I had.

    One night looking outside was nearly as bright as day.
    your jammies.

  18. What an incredible moon shot!! Fantastic! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one running outside pj clad -- the neighbors have started a "pj watch" here. Just hope it doesn't get worse!!!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  28. Good morning, moon.

    I've missed several opportunities like this because my camera crapped out and I had to ship it off for service.
