8th Place in “Ode to the Moon” 6-17-2011

Challenge

Featured in “The World As We See It, or as we missed it” 4-15-2011

First attempt at actually shooting the real moon!!! :o) I used my Nikon P100 with telephoto lens and this is what I got. Didn’t use a tripod, so I held the camera as steady as possible…I bet if I used a tripod, I probably could have had a sharper image :o) too lazy to go upstairs to get tripod…LOL…this was taken April 13th, 2011 at 7:15 p.m.

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!

    This looks really sharp to me. I used a tripod for my moon shot and the clarity is nowhere near as good as this one.

  • TY very much…I guess I am just picky…heehee I want SHARP!!! LOL :o)

    The focus is great… it even shows the craters. Whilst you saw it at night, we had the privilege of seeing it in bright day light against a beautiful blue sky… sadly my camera was at home whilst I was stuck in traffic… Great capture.

  • TY very much Betty…now my next project is a full moon!!! heehee :o)
