Moonscape


Last night the moon rose over the mountian of our view. My 500 mm Canon lens was already set-up on the tripod and I couldn't resist taking this photo of the moon. "Chance favors the prepared photographer."

What stunning photographs.

The first one is absolutely breath taking.

The moon was so attractive for me, too, last night (here in San Jose, CA). I took several photos, too. I only had a 300mm lens, but some of them still turned out really nice. I'll have to edit the pix before posting them. But that will have to wait until I get back from vacation.

Mary, hope you got some nice moon shots also.
Mine were taken with a Canon Mark II camera with a Canon 500 mm lens plus a 2x teleconverter on the lens. The camera and lens were mounted on a big Gitzo 1325 carbon fiber tripod with a Whimberley head. To see a photo of my camera gear go to
