Moon + Contrail

I was taking late afternoon moon shots a couple weeks ago as this contrail was drifting across the sky. Lucky timing for me, as I was all set up (telephoto lens and tripod) to capture it! Kind of interesting looking, don't you think??

  17. Wow, beautiful views! Would love to knowhow to do moon captures ... is there a way to capture the moon without a telelens? The closest I have to a zoomlens is a Tamron lens.
