Moondance

Fast-moving clouds and a full moon are a nice combination. I used a 400mm lens, tripod, ISO 1600, f/5.6, exposure times varied depending upon cloud cover (1/10 sec to 1/50 sec). Taken in my back yard during the last full moon.



Here's a square-crop of the above shot...

  2. Great moon shots. I remember watching the first lunar landing on an old small screen (in a huge cabinet) black and white TV at my aunt's apartment. It seems so incongruous for something so modern to be displayed on something so old. - Margy

  5. Night Sky, principally the moon and clouds, is my favorite phenomena of this planet and life, which I fully expect to bring me enormous wonder, comfort and memories, on my final Earth night. Smashing Job! The penultimate shot is now my favorite lunar portrait of ALL time. NICELY done, sir!

  10. Great shots. Isn't it funny how well we see the old man's face at a distance and it is so different up close.
