It was beautiful tonight. A full moon I think. The sky was filled with sunset colors of orange to red, and violet to blue. Rising above the horizon was a deep orange full moon.
Sadly I didn’t grab my camera until the moon had risen a good ways up already and had lost its orange tinge. With the new zoom lens, I thought it would be a cool idea to try and take a shot of the moon. I had tried in times past, and it had never turned out very well. I am actually quite content with things turned out. I wasn’t expecting it to be so good, even after I cropped off a good chunk of the photo to get a nice full shot of the moon. I had anticipated that there would be a loss in quality and definition. Spending a good amount of time trying to see which settings best worked, I managed to take a few good shots.
