Taken Tuesday night, a bit too late for the landscape:

That is all.

That’s beautiful. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Knowing where the photographs are taken, the stories/adventures that you set up for taking the shots. And all the technical information that you are so willing to share. I hope things work out for you soon. Don’t ever give up. Don’t let anyone tell you no.

Absolutely stunning. I struggle to photograph the moon–no matter how I adjust the settings, I can never translate what I see through the viewfinder into a photo. Great job!

Beeeyootiful. That is all. 😉

emd, thanks. Momma taught me to share, and now that she’s gone ahead, it’s all I can do to honor her memory!

Christine, I try to photograph the moon against a twilight skyline/horizon, underexposed by perhaps two stops, then bring up the dark areas with Fill Light in Photoshop camera raw. If you don’t have PS5 or another good photo processing tool, I don’t know what else you could do… I’m not a computer guy, and only know what I need to know to get the job done. Of course, it helps to have a long lens or decent telephoto; even at 800mm, this is a crop/enlargement.

Lisa, thank you. That is all. 😉

Total awesomeness. Having neither the equipment nor the skills for this, I rely on your generous sharing.

Thanks, Paul. I’m happy to share!

Thank you for taking the time to put the moon into perspective~

KS, welcome! I usually get at it earlier in the evening when it has a horizon to be compared to, so your “perspective” perspective is a bit unjustified, though I promise to try harder going forward. 😉
