What do you get a guy who thinks he has everything he needs or wants? My girl gave me the Moon, or at least the closest I’ve come to it so far! She gave me my new camera, a Canon PowerShot SX40 HS for Christmas, and I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since, tonight I watched the near full moon as I came home from work, eager to get to the camera and give it a try. I took this handheld shot (only steadied by a tree for some stabilization) on the Auto setting, 35x optical zoom, and POW! I was on the moon! I know I still have four more days till a true full moon, but I was anxious! I may have more shots soon!
I dedicate this shot to my girl, with joyful gratitude and love!
I would also like to dedicate it to the folks at Canon, keep up the great work!!
