Harvest Moon



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I haven't had a great deal of success when it comes to getting pictures of the moon, but that hasn't kept me from trying. Last week we had a beautiful full moon, so I tried again.

I've never had any luck with taking a picture of the moon either. You did good though.

Whatever lens you used it worked !
Somehow it's so alluring, yet desolate, I prefer earth ;)
Thanks for sharing George...you nailed it !

George,
I am glad you were persistent in getting that Moon shot. This photo is spectacular. Great image that you captured. Thanks for sharing this harvest moon.

Your moon is lovely!

I'm not sure what your setting were at, but I recommend trying it at 100 ISO (because the moon is so bright - it will help to capture more details) and at a quick shutter speed. Oh, and a tripod definitely helps too. :)
