Moon Shot

I was restless last night so I got up in the wee hours of the morning. I poured myself a glass of sweet milk and scarfed up a gingersnap cookie. Standing at the garden door, I took in the view to the south.
The moon was full and cast a glow over the field between the house and barn. I stood for a long while taking in the scene and letting my mind wander. I wish my camera was sensitive enough to capture a picture. My old camera had a 'bulb" setting which left the shutter open for extended periods letting the ambient light bathe across the film capturing the low-light images.
My digital camera doesn't have that setting so I took a mental picture which is probably better anyhow.
When I went back to bed, I closed my eyes and savored the midnight snack, and the moon shot in my mind.
