Shoot The Moon

With all of the rain and overcast conditions we've had this winter, the moon hasn't been visible all that much. It was full recently and it happened to be a clear night so I didn't pass it up. I took 20 or so shots with a couple of different lenses at various focal lengths just for variety.

Vey nice pictures here. The moon is fantastic. I took one picture the other night on the moon in the morning , it had a very strange colour, yellow/orange.

I love the moon shots! I posted some back in October, I think. I missed the full moon on Wednesday as we had one of our usual monsoonal storms which made visibilty poor and it was too wet.
Well captured.

You did wonderfully, Brian! Shooting the moon is something I have major issues with -- never turn out. Good job!

Great work Brian, changing the lens and focal length made a huge difference. It went from a pea to an overripe cantalope/watermelon! ;D

(Sorry, I haven't had breakfast yet!)
