Fairfield Moon



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I usually don't have much success trying to get photos of the moon, but I got this shot a couple of weeks and thought it came out pretty well.

That’s a very nice shot George! Most of my photos of the moon turn out rather poor.

Fred Alton said...

Excellent,George! What Camera are you using? I think I remember Betsy saying EOS Cannon ... but is there a certain lens, or setting that you use for these fabulous pictures?

What a great shot!! I love the contrast and definition! You need to howl at the moon more often, George!

Leovi said...

I love the moon, beautiful picture, delicious.

It turned out great! You should try it with tremors and a crappy camera.

Wow! You can really see the detail in that shot!! It looks more like a planet than the moon!

You got a good capture.

diane b said...

It is a good one. I, too , find it difficult to capture the moon. I guess manual focus is necessary.

BlueShell said...

Indeed, very nice...we almost can see the "craters" (I do not know if it is the way to say it)...
But I like it.
Thanks,
Kiss

Remarkable detail you captured there! (It has been much too long since I took any pictures of the moon.) Nicely done, Sir.

Lynda said...

I like it! You did very well. I have only tried to capture a couple of the moon and have not been successful.
