Sky Watch Friday

Another Look At The Moon


Canon 40D: 300mmF4
It seems that the moon in becoming one of my favorite subjects. I arrived at my favorite observation post early last Monday morning and the moon was still shining. I noticed that the trees framed it quite nicely so I took several shots of it and this seemed to be the best one!

That moon is loving you back. This is a great shot. (I have been trying to get her but I'm not proficient enough, and night is up and over before I know it! Live and learn--and enjoy the good works of the folks who can get the shot!)

I am so grateful for you putting your lens and settings because when my Canon comes in mid-April, I can return, use your settings, and just maybe become as good as you! My SWF is here. Thank you.
