Yesterday was cold and sunny and last night remained clear. Time to practice some moon shots.
I turned out the lights and went outside to watch as the moon rose over the trees. I took my tripod and cameras and wore my warm jacket and head lamp.
(I once took a nature photography class, and the instructor spent an entire session on safety. I thought it strange at the time, but not since, and am careful when I venture out, especially at night. But I digress)
I started with my Sony RX10 and liked the pictures of the moon lassoed by branches the best.
I followed with my new Lumix FZ300 for the best closeups; the 600 mm zoom clearly outperforming the 200 on my Sony.
Both cameras have their place and I’ll continue to practice with both when the weather cooperates. I woke to snow falling this morning – already turning to slush – and rain and snow are in the forecast all week.
