playing with moonlight

New Year's Eve had a waning gibbous moon. I was trying, with no tripod (because I thought I didn't have enough time to get back in the house for the tripod), to get a good photo of the moon using a telephoto lens. Unfortunately, I couldn't get an image I really liked because of the blur associated with long exposures. So I thought it might be a good idea to try abstract art with light streaks.  A fireworks display got into frame too. Here's what I got in the end. Next time, I'll use a tripod.
