Lunar Landing!

We were out in Joshua Tree last weekend. I wasn't planning on taking moon shots, but just happened to notice the moon coming in for a landing over the Joshua Tree boulders (Saturday, 12.12.15 at 6:30 PM). Right place, right time!! These are straight out of the camera except for some image cropping.







f6.3, 3.2 sec. exposure, ISO 400, 400mm telephoto lens

  22. How fun. I was just in Palm springs and did manage to get out and shoot some Costa's hummingbirds. Alas I didn't have time to get up to Joshua Tree.
