The moon was one day past full this evening, but still looked honkin’ big rising up out of the trees.
It’s an interesting problem with this lens, trying to get the Christmas lights bright enough to be seen with a long exposure while, not whiting out the whole picture with a tremendously overexposed moon.Much easier with the regular lens. This is just a tiny bit of the yard in order to catch the moon rising. If I go back to pick up the whole yard, the trees (which are holding up all of the lights!) block out the rising moon.This in turn was an interesting view, with the slightly overexposed and out of focus moon in the far distance, the bright and out of focus lights just a foot or so away, and the silhouetted trees in the middle being in sharp focus.
