    February 20th Almost Full85 viewsI happened to run to the store and saw the moon as it rose from behind the Wasatch. It looked absolutely huge, so I hurried back to the house and set up my camera with a 50-500mmm sigma lens and 2x teleconverter, shooting with an ISO of 200 at 1/100 of a second and f/14 f-stop.

    Full Moon and Fast Clouds98 viewsThe clouds were booking it across the moon when I took this. It was hard to leave the shutter open, to catch the lit up clouds without washing out the moon, and having the clouds blur, which was in the end the effect. Still neat looking.
