MOONDANCE

Last night's moonrise over our little lake, with a tree and grass on the tee box in the distance (no color saturation added; I steadied the camera on a brick wall without a tripod)

My first attempt to “shoot the moon” with a hand-held camera!

Using my new camera with a 26x zoom and a tripod - definitely better! (I think this looks like a big melon with the stem at the bottom right!)

The first one is VERY impressive Brenda. Amazing that you could get that bright of color. You should try a version with the reflection cropped out. Well done

Tracylynn Seeger 6 years, 10 months ago

Wow, that first shot is amazing! The reflection is so beautiful, and I love the little tree that is lit up on the green. The last shot is great too. I love taking pictures of the moon with my telephoto lens, it never ceases to amaze me!

Marsha 6 years, 10 months ago

Exceptional......especially #1!!! The green color really adds to the moodiness. Did the moon provide the lighting on the green or was there another light as well?

Helen Hooker 6 years, 10 months ago

Great set Brenda! I'm always surprised how fast a shutter speed you can use when shooting the moon - it's so bright!!
