It was a full moon tonight, a really full moon.
My wife read online that the moon was going to look
as much as 12% bigger than other times. (The reason
for this is the fact that it is near the low point
in it's slightly elliptical orbit.) So we thought it would be a
good evening for some evening shots.
The sun was gone when I took this, just a faint glow behind me.
The glow to the left of the photo is from the full moon.
And the stars are clearly visible.
This is not a new type of shot for me. But it is just about a
first with my digital camera. I can usually pull this off pretty
well with film, but the digital was a little more temperamental.
Actually, it is just what you get used to. Now that I know how
it likes to be treated, I think I'll be using it a lot more
