Great shot indeed.... Mind sharing some tips on shooting the moon?

I don't have much in the way to words of wisdon on shooting the moon... other than you need as long a lens as you have access to. This is a 300mm (zoom) on a DX camera (smaller sensor so it's more tele than on a full-frame sensor). Must use a tripod. This is also cropped in a good bit from a full frame shot. The moon has that cool color for two reasons... it's lit by the setting sun and I used fluorescent color balance to get a better blue in the sky. The moon looks big when it's close to the horizon and you can get terrestrial objects in the shot.

Are you ever going to post here again?

Hey Judy... I never actually made a decision to stop posting, I guess it's just that after 5 years I've really lost my enthusiasm for it and I just don't think about it all the time like I used to. I was repeating myself a lot and Facebook has replaced the function of the blog on some levels. I will probably start posting again at some point when I have some ideas I need to get out there.

Casio is making a camera that changes the picture into artwork.

I hope you come back.

I still have the bookmark.

I still come here and look.
