Since the first full moon in October, I’ve been sharing full moon shots for my Moon Monday posts. Today I thought I’d change it up a bit, especially after getting around 50 shots of the waxing crescent moon on November 17th!
Hubby had just gotten home that Tuesday (at about 6pm) and I happened to notice the beautiful sliver hanging just high enough above the trees at the end of the driveway to give me a shot at capturing it. It took me a bit to narrow the shots down, as I was a bit mesmerized by the slight differences between captures and how it would change the vibe of the photo. I finally gave up after paring it to twenty shots, that 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 sky color comes from zooming in and out, and bumping the exposure up and down a bit in the process. And as almost always, these were taken with my my Nikon affixed to my tripod), in my Durham New Hampshire yard.
Before I get started though, I thought I’d share this tidbit of info I discovered when searching the interwebs to confirm the moon phase (the New/Dark Moon was Sunday the 15th). This is from AstroSeek’s Moon Phase Calendar for Tuesday November 17th, 2020 –
