The moon is a constant source of amazement to me .. taking pictures of it is very tricky, especially since I don't have a specialized camera .. just a long optical zoom at 26 x.
If you saw this one in person last night it seemed much closer to the earth than this picture illustrates .. it was gorgeous !The sky has to be just the right tint and light value .. too light and it looks transparent .. like these shots.
Then just at the right moment with all the elements rooting for you .. a more detailed picture can be captured ..
Within minutes as the sky becomes darker that famous "moon glow" will start ..
The edges become blurred .. the detail fades into the back ground and you can't really see those special points.
Full glow mode is a beautiful moment too though ... even if you can't get a decent picture with detail.
It was VERY cold yesterday so sticking my self halfway out the deck door was also tricky ..
Spring ... you can hurry up a little PLEASE !!!
