Moon Feature

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 30, 2012, 9:56 AM

I saw a moon photo somewhere on here a while ago and realised that the moon was rotated from the view that I see down here in Australia.  Yes, it does stand to reason, but I hadn't paid any attention to it until that moment.  So I've been looking at various images around dA and have now made a small list of thumb numbers and would like to Feature them all.

I've arranged them according to the position of one particular crater on a virtual clock face.

If you want to see which crater I am meaning look at the crater the 'plane' nose is pointing at My dear friend Mark :icongunmetal-rat: tells me "That's The Proclus Crater On The Shores Of Palus Somni ( Marsh Of Sleep )" Thanks Mark :iconblakelord:
I'd be very happy if you can look out for photos of the missing clock positions so that I can complete my set.  Any idea on which countries would provide the correct view?

I dedicate this feature to a beautiful friend, Donna :iconbrightstar2: who I know loves moon photos and who I instantly thought of when I first intended to make this Feature.

Much love to all

You're so welcome dear Sandy, I'd been looking for a photo with the moon that way up and was so excited to find one in the gallery of a friend :squee-loveplz:
I just need one more photo to complete the circle :eager:

Did you read in the Feature description where I show one particular crater that I'm focussing on? Well, I have that particular crater photographed at almost every position around a circle. I'm just missing it at the same place as a number 7 on a clock face. I think it needs to be a photo taken around your part of the world to see it that way. That's why I put all the locations of where the photos were taken - to see how the moon looks from different parts of the world. I think it's really interesting.
Well, I have to go out now, but good luck if you can find a '7 o'clock' for me :eager: Thanks you Sandy :iconalesiandra:
