Big, Bright, Beautiful

Did you get a chance to admire the moon a couple nights ago? Apparently it was unusually close to Earth, so it looked extra big and bright. 

I've taken moon pictures before, but it's been a while, so I was excited to get some on Saturday night. It's one of those occasions where I am really happy to have a telephoto lens that enables me to get some more detail. The picture below was shot at 300mm, then cropped quite a bit. 

As much as I enjoy taking pictures of the moon, I'm reminded that it has a much more important purpose than being a subject for my lens. It's glorifying its Creator, who made it so beautiful.
"Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!"
(Psalm 148:3 ESV)
