Big Red Ass Moon!

 

Well, here’s my shot of the big ol’ moon from last night. I couldn’t believe how many people tripped down to the beach to shoot this. To be honest, I struggled with the settings and for the life of me couldn’t get a really sharp shot. I think it comes down to the cheap kit lens I’m using. Oh well. Another issue was composition. I felt that if I shot the moon all by itself you wouldn’t have anything to compare it to, in order to get a better sense of scale. That’s why I set up behind the guy watching from the rocks on the shoreline. I sort of envied him, since he seemed to be there just to watch it and take it in. My, I was too busy playing with controls, trying to focus and get a good shot to truly appreciate the event. But at least I have it here to remember, right?

    Oh that red moon is awesome. I love the way it looks like it’s melting into the water in the second shot.

  5. Thanks Sunsetseasoul and Amber. At first I wasn’t sure about the effect on the water, but I’ve grown to like it.
