I suppose a photograph of the moon counts as a landscape...

The night before a full moon, broken clouds drifting through the sky create an errie collection of colors in the sky. (February 19, 2008; Canon 20D, 300mm, f/8.0, ISO 400, 0.8s)



The next night was the full moon -- and a full lunar eclipse. I captured this shot just as the moon was coming out from behind Earth's shadow. (February 20, 2008; Canon 20D, 300mm, f/8.0, ISO 400, 0.6s)



Both of these photos were taken from my apartment's balcony in Issaquah.

nice shots indeed... reminds me of the line from "The Highwayman"...
"... and the moon was a ghostly galleon, tossed upon stormy seas..."

nice eclipse shot, too... eclipses are hard to shoot, because the shutter speed is so slow during totality that the moon's movement during a 3-second exposure blurs the shot... about the only time you can really get a clear shot is when the moon is partially obscured at most...
