I’d been up and about early this morning–though not as early as I’d liked, but that’s another story–when I discovered the really cool moon set. I knew the near-full moon was up and about, but hadn’t thought about this morning until I looked outside.
We’ve been dog sitting, and I was getting ready to go do an early walk with the little guy, when I saw this. So I rushed outside with my Nikon and snapped off a couple of shots in literally some five minutes before I’d lost the moon set. Yes, it set that quickly. No, I didn’t time it. Focus. I also knew that the moon would be (and was) overexposed, but by the time I tried to get the best image in-focus I was quickly losing it and didn’t want to fiddle around with finding the best exposure compensation setting.
So, I just thought I’d make myself useful since I haven’t been posting much, and throw these up here. I used my Nikon D3400. It was at 6:30 a.m. Used my 70-300mm lens. I love the graininess of the shots, too. I mean, I wish they’d come out sharper, but I like the creepy look and all.
