The next exercise on Back to Basics meme was to take a picture of celestial bodies. I am super thankful that this challenge came up during the full moon, as I cannot think of any way of presenting my image.
I know, this lacked composition... and that this isn't that pretty - I took this picture without the help of the tripod (the moon was still "too" low the time I took this, the houses were covering the sight and I had to extend my hand just for my camera lens to capture the moon). My saving grace was the shutter speed - even if my hands weren't that steady, I still was able to capture it well, I think. :)

Camera - Canon Powershot SX130is
