Moon

This was one of my photos of the supermoon a couple of weeks ago.. (actual pixel size)

Super moon

In other news, Uncle Colin called me out of the blue this afternoon - he was in the country and could he pop over after dinner to say hi..  so he did!  Was nice to see him again.  Hopefully we'll see him again early in the new year before he wanders off back to Europe (it's a tough life but someone has to do it!)

So Wednesday night saw me standing outside for nearly two hours documenting the moon.

Part way there

A little further

Exposed for the dark side, makes the bright bit *very* bright

A mid-way exposure

Then I remembered I had Dad's 250mm lens.  Just cropped here, so the picture is bigger, but I don't think the quality is there - it's very soft.

Another one

This a 30 second exposure so I could capture Neptune - which is in the very top right corner of the picture

Back to my lens

Totality is finished now

And a bit more out of the shadow

At this point I gave up and went to bed

I didn't get up.  Maybe if I'd known where I could have seen it without having to walk to far I might have.  But 4am is a completely silly time to be up doing that sort of thing.

So I satisfied myself tonight with a hazy shot through fine cloud.

Nearly missed my bus the other morning taking photos of cobwebs covered in fog...

And the moon behind the clouds tonight was pretty cool

Cloudy moonrise

Bit better day today than yesterday.  Didn't really achieve all that much, it took much of the day just to do one thing :/

I was going to plan out all the things I wanted to do this weekend tonight.  I got as far as listing some of the things that need doing around the garden.

Gave up on that and played some SingStar.

Here's some pics of the moon I've taken recently.

First, one I took a few weeks ago at work drinks at sunset

Then another one at drinks a week later
Waxing moon
And this was moonrise last night

I never tire of taking crazy light photos.  I really should practise more and try different things..

And here's a pic of the moon last week (full pixels - the 105mm would make this smaller :( )

Other than that a pretty standard Monday.  Actually had a bit of a lull in my crazy todo list so did some operational stuff.  Not much tonight other than a full backup of my hard drive.

I wasn't really planning on attempting moon photos tonight.  We don't have a good view of the east so I'd have to go out to try and find somewhere that could actually see the moonrise.

But in the end I did go out and found somewhere with a clear view of the moon.  

It was pretty cool.

Maybe I should get that L series lens.. although the 24-105 would have this picture a little smaller, but clearer.  Unless I got a super zoom 300mm.. that would give me a much better zoom hehe.
