Clear skies

It’s been freezing and overcast all week, and all I’ve managed to photograph is a long-tailed tit at 1/15 sec – but tonight’s full moon is some compensation (NASA say it’s a “perigee” moon – when the moon is at its closest to the earth).

    WOW! That is beautiful. Is that for real, cause I’ve never ever got to see the moon like that. That is a real neat shot. 😉

  4. Hi DragonWiz, thanks for dropping by. It’s real! I guess a few years ago you’d have needed loads of expensive gear to get a shot like that – I just pointed the panasonic (OK, with a x1.7 teleconverter – that makes it equivalent to about a 700mm lens on a 35mm camera), opened it up to f/3.7 and fired away.
