Finally I got some luck with the Full Moonset and no clouds.. Not a cloud in sight this morning, and the moon was beautiful setting over Mount Cooroy. I have been doing tests lately with composition of moonrises and moonsets. If you take the shot with a massive zoom, from a few 1000 metres away, the moon is beautiful and large! I have learnt to throw away the 10mm lens for these kind of shots!

Moonset of Thursday, 6th August, 2009 – 6:04am. Over the Noosa River, Noosa Sound, looking over Noosaville.

    Well done Adam. Very nice indeed.
    P.S. It must have been nice and chilly at that time. :)

  • Thanks a bunch Matt, wasn’t too bad this morning actually.. I was surprised the moon was so distorted right on the horizon, about 3 minutes after this shot. I thought is was the heat that made it do that, maybe the earth is still hot I guess.. ?
