Happy Moon Monday! As I mentioned on Twitter a few days ago, the night of the full moon was bitter cold and wicked cloudy. Added to that bit of loveliness was the ongoing issue with my camera battery dying after about a dozen shots, which meant I’d go outside and snap until my Nikon declared it was “exhausted” then go back in to charge it whilst I warmed up. However, my
stubbornness persistence paid off with just under fifty total shots (with fifteen post worthy pictures) of the Full Wolf Moon on January 28th 2021. For my astrology loving friends, this was also a Leo Full Moon – what an awesome combo for the first full moon of the year!
I managed to get outside the following night as well, which was less cloudy (but just as bone chilling) and took closer to seventy shots over the course of the evening, so I’ll share some of those for next week’s Moon Monday.
As for my battery issues, I believe it’s been resolved after my husband
got tired of me being wishy washy about getting a new battery decided to research and purchase not one, but two replacement batteries that also came with a charger (he found an awesome deal on Amazon). And I say “believe” because I haven’t tried them with my camera yet and I don’t want to jinx anything…lol
Also, these aren’t filtered in any way. I’ve just reduced the file size, and in some cases tweaked the exposure and/or sharpness a bit. The difference in the color of the moon comes from zooming in and out, and bumping the exposure up and down, not from tinting it (yet I’m still amazed, even after a number of years snapping La Luna, that she sometimes looks rose or amber colored). And as always, these were taken with my my Nikon affixed to my tripod), in my Durham New Hampshire yard between 7pm and 10pm Thursday night.
Now on to the photos!
