The Moon Part II

by Meghan Mccrorey February. 01, 2018 706 views

Sadly I did not get to actually capture the Blood moon which was what I really wanted but I did get these shots of the rising full moon. Although it looks as if I edited them to be black and white these are SOOC with the first couple of them cropped. Just as the moon was rising up behind the trees the clouds started to move in. These make me think of Halloween.

I love the trees in front of the moon the most. It is mysterious and hidden and the trees add a bit of drama to the entire scene. I really enjoy photographing the moon possibly because I also teach it during my day job.

great shots, I am still editing mine of the moon, I am so out of my element on night photography. All you need is a werewolf and you have a great Horror photo with the full moon

Thank you! It was a lot of trial and error on this one. I started with the recommended settings from an article  I read and then went from there. I love how it comes out, when it comes out right, but it is definitely a challenge. I have not ventured in to any real editing yet so I am always hoping for at least a couple goog shots.

My very 1st thought was how halloweenish.  I love the trees fronting the moon. You’ll see my shots have the moon peeping through masts quite often.   Beautiful!

I love the when the moon is around something versus when it is just in the sky. It still looks cool but I love when something else is in the pic.
