A few days ago, I was sitting on the balcony with a million thoughts in my head, so many things to blog about, so many tasks on the to-do list, even a presentation to finish, when I looked up and saw this beautiful sight.
I quickly rallied the troops, secured Abroozi in his harness, strapped the camera and tripod on the DH and we trotted down the drive way to get a better view of this beautiful moon. When you are photographing the moon you should try to do it early, just as it rises, so that the moon is still low in the sky so you get a panoramic view. If you can capture the scene from a height, like from on top of a hill or a roof, then even better as you’ll get a wider view. This is all we could manage as the moon had already risen quite a bit.
A couple of weeks before the full moon, the DH took this close up of the moon’s surface using the Konus 2000mm telescope
