Half MoonPosted: August 6, 2014 Filed under: Nature, photography | Tags: blue, close up, moon, nature, photography, sky Leave a comment
The other evening we had a super clear sky – not a cloud in sight, so the moon really stood out against the blue.
It was an opportunity to see if I could capture any detail with my inbuilt camera zoom. I’d been very happy with the results I’d got for close-ups, but I wasn’t sure if it would be any good with distance as there was no detail showing in the moon to the naked eye.
I’ve included these distance shots to illustrate the lack of detail. This one I ‘vignetted’ but I’m not all that thrilled with it as I’d absentmindedly forgotten to ‘save’ the one I really wanted!
I’ve included this one because I’d accidently captured a couple of birds as well ….. I just didn’t see them!
