Well, I wish I could say that I have picked up the camera each day like I have been doing faithfully for most of the year, I did get five out of the seven days and I had two planned photos shoots. I need to step it up and get back to bringing out the camera daily. (be it the new one or my phone camera, I am not fussy on that part)
I swear I could just make this whole post nothing but “full moon photos” and that will be the main push on it, as I did a photo session as it was rising up and was colored still.. then I got up at just after 3am and snuck out of the house and its clear and cold in color.. both sets are lovely in their own way..
This was the early rising and it was hued from the setting sun.. I also had to laugh as I was taking it low enough that it was “just clearing the tree line.. or not
The later very early morning photo shoot , the moon was coming down but was still high in the sky, clear and clean! It was a brisk -24c.. brrr..
I love the halo effect on this further away shot, it a very good one because it was pretty much what you could see with your naked eye.. maybe not quite as much detail but close and it lit up the whole night in this amazing moonlight, I honestly had the thought that if it had been safe to do so, I would have saddled up and gone for a ride to bring in the sunrise.. it would have been earth magic!
I am very pleased with this one, I did realize that I need to get to the point that I can take a photo without needing to press the shutter button as I would have gotten even more detailed photos if I had not had to touch the camera which caused it to “shake” just a touch.. Below was my version of a close up (in camera, not cropped) of that strike.
All of the photos above where taken on a tripod, none of them have had their colors messed with or any cropping or other photo software.. I left them as the camera took them, I think they stand on their own as is.
I guess I am going to just leave it here.. Yup.. it was truly a beautiful moon and so worth the effort to try and get these.. I hope you will enjoy them 🙂
