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."

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.
