Full Moon

ISO 100  f/5.6  1/15
This is the first moon photograph I have ever taken.  I had tried in the past but always with overexposed, bright results that showed no detail of the moon at all.  I came across a professional photogragher in Colorado Springs and he conducted a class on how to take moon pictures.  I wasnt able to attend the livestream but I was able to read his notes for the class.  After reading them, grabbing my tripod and realizing today was a full moon...I headed out back in hope of catching a great shot.  I am quite pleased with the result, the photograph turned out better than I could hope!  Check out Paul's instruction (and website) to learn how to take one for yourself!

This is so awesome. This is something to try once I get a tripod.
