Moon Over the Glade

Moon Over Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. December 10, 2010.

As some of you may know, I’ve been trying to learn how to use the manual settings on the new camera I got earlier in the year.  I think I’ve managed to get some pretty good pictures in daylight, but nighttime photography is something I’m still working on.

Friday night we had a nice quarter moon in the sky over the Glade, so I put my 250mm lens on my camera and went out with my tripod to see what I could get.  I like the picture above, but next time I experiment on moon photography I think I’ll ask to borrow Betsy’s 300mm lens.

    Me too.I’m trying to learn the manual settings. I haven’t tried the moon yet. You have done a great job here especially when enlarged.

    All those camera settings can be interesting. I’m still experimenting for night photos also. You got a nice photo of the moon.

    you did a good job, i have given up on moon shots, never gotten one near as good as this one. like the snow falling to, how did you do that

    I can see the craters, and it’s snowing in front of the moon!! Very cool. Night photography is extremly hard! When I take my moon pictures, I don’t have a tripod!! On such a zoom, one tiny breath or shake ruins it! Sometimes i can balance it on the car window ledge.

    Terrific moon shot, George! I don’t get them very often, but it’s wonderful when I do! Hope your week is off to a great start!

    This is beautiful George. Night shots are out of my league still….hopefully one day I will learn.

    Excellent moon shot George. I like taking pics of the moon. I wonder though when people talk about settings and adjustments and all that camera talk. I just point my camera at the moon zoom and focus and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. MB

    That’s a nice shot! I hope Betsy will part with her lens for a little while. 🙂

    I think you did a marvelous job George!
    I saw that moon but it was cloudy here and too cold for me to try my hand at a moon shot.
    It had to be cold there too so I commend you for going out.

    That’s not a bad job at all George. 🙂 It looked just like that here at Sanibel. Keep up the good work. 🙂
