One question I get every so ofter, is how to take pictrures of the moon. Unless you have a really long lens, try to tnclude the moon in the frame along with some landscape, buildings or an interesting sky. Try not to make the moon the only thing in the picture. In many cases it doesn't work. It's not interesting enough. In this pictures I have a little bit of tree branches on the bottom, an intersting cloudy sky, a plane leaving a trail to the right of the mooon.
Our Maine vacation is over. We had a great time with our friends. The weather was great. And the moon and the sky were beautiful on our last night. Here we have two exposures taken from almost the same location. The reflection of the moon on the lake was beautiful. They were taken a half an hour apart. We were lucky to still have a bit of the beaufiful color of the sunset on the horizon. Even thought the sun had set about an hour before the last exposure.
A tripod was necesary for the pictures. On the first picture I wanted to add some perspective using the branch of a tree that was about 25 feet away. The same branch wouldn't work for the second shot, because it was already too dark and instead I moved a bit to the left and zoomed in a bit closer.
