You Capture: Circles

This is my first go at doing You Capture, so I hope I do it right!

I just took this picture tonight as the sun set:
1/19
This on was taken a little after:
1/19

Please head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry to see more circle pictures!
*** Editing to add a confession. These were taken with a point and shoot. Granted it's a kick butt super zoom point and shoot, but still.
I have the Canon SX30is. It has an INSANE zoom and manages not to get to noisy even at 140x optical. I did use a tripod because at that zoom moving .00001 in blows the shot.

Oh my goodness. You did this 100% right. What perfect shots. I love what you captured.

Your little boys are so cute. I love their happy smiles in the header. What a fun family!

WONDERFUL circles! I'm impressed (and a tad jealous I didn't think of it...)

I was going to "shoot the moon" for the Circles challenge too, but mine didn't come out very well at all, so I didn't use them. Your's are beautiful! Great job!

Wow - I am having moon shot envy today. I think I need to grab the camera and try a few myself. Thanks for the inspiration and for stopping by my blog today.

WOW. WOW. WOW. These are the nicest moon shots I have ever seen. And I can't believe you took them with a point and shoot. I can't take a decent shot of the moon to save my life. Believe me I've tried!
