The moon just as it comes over Mount Sentinel!

The moon just as it comes over Mount Sentinel!

Last night as I was driving I could see the moon was just about to come over the mountain. The light was just starting the touch the clouds around moon. I found a good spot to pull over and pulled out the tripod and set up the shot. I focused on the trees on the top of the mountain.

I haven’t taken a picture of the moon in awhile, and couldn’t quite remember how to do it on the spot. That moon moves extremely fast when you’re watching it so I just guessed. Of course after the moon was above the tree line I remembered you can’t shoot the moon at such a slow shutter speed because it’s moving too fast.

My settings for this was 25.0 sec at f/8.0 ISO 100 focal length 60mm. I knew it wasn’t going to e the shot I had envisioned when I pulled over, but I opened in Lightroom anyway. It wasn’t what I was expecting, but I liked it.
