After a ridiculously large number of days & nights of rain, last night the weather finally cooperated. As a result, I was able to get some pictures of the Full Sturgeon Moon.
Okay, “some” might be a bit of an understatement. After peeking outside a couple of times earlier in the evening, La Luna was finally high enough in the sky to clear the trees around 10pm. Twenty-ish minutes later, I had about 150 shots!
I waited until this morning to go through them all, so I could pick the ones I wanted to post. The first pass through I ended up with about 50..
As you can see, there were a bunch of similar shots, with just the tiniest bit of difference (slightly different angle, adjusted exposure). After another buzz through them all, I managed to drop it down to two dozen.
For those interested in the technical stuff – as always, I used my trusty Nikon COOLPIX P610 and handy dandy tripod (yes, those are Amazon affiliate links – thanks for the pennies if you click through and order something!). I use the Auto Mode setting – the differences in color and such are due to changes in zoom and exposure (I typically bounce the exposure bias around between 0 and -2 step). Then I reduced the pictures by 20% or 25%, cropped if necessary, et voilà!
Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did taking them!
Thanks for stopping by!
