Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars...
I managed to get as far as 9 o’clock this evening without having taken a photo so I was very grateful to see this almost full moon when I popped out to do the weekly food shop. As soon as I got home I grabbed my camera with my longest lens and extender and set about taking some photos. Sadly, a even 200mm lens with a 1.4x extender on a cropped sensor camera just doesn’t get you close enough to the moon so this has been heavily cropped. There was a little hazy cloud across the moon by the time I took this so I’ve had to do a little tweaking in Lightroom to add a little clarity to the surface of the planet. One day I’ll win the lottery and be able to afford a super-dooper long lens to do this heavenly body justice….
