IN THE FIELD: Night Sky

Getting a good shot of the moon has been a quest of mine for a long time. Having the right lens, clear atmospheric conditions, a stable tripod, and minimal light pollution are the key to a good photograph.

One night last week I was finally able to get the shot I was after.

Liar, liar…pants on fire.

    Looks like you got a great shot of the moon! You might want to clean your lens, thought. Those unusual lines might prove distracting. πŸ˜‰ I’m searching for a great moon shot too!

      Thanks Ted, you are right…I had better clean the lens…I was puzzled by those lines when I looked at the photo on the computer…

    Oh wow, this is a brilliant shot. And somehow, I love the puzzle-effect (right?). Makes it even more interesting.

      Thanks Nandini, I saw this puzzle on the wall of a shop I was in and just had to get a shot of it. I knew right then what I was going to do with the photo LOL.

      Uh oh….you got me on this one…nothing better than a nice cold “beverage.” It was after 5:00 pm…

    That’s funny πŸ™‚ What a great jigsaw puzzle. I love doing them – so relaxing.

      Glad you got a kick out of this one…I like doing puzzles also. We have one which is a photo of a carousel at night….nearly impossible because of all the black pieces. One day we will finish it. I also have some that are maps of places. I really enjoy those!

      Thanks Gracie, Yeah, I guess the title was just a little teeny tiny bit misleading LOL

    Love your sense of humor!

    you and your lies! πŸ˜€ First the iron flowers in your sisters garden, now the moon! πŸ™‚ Love the picture, I guess it wasn’t very difficult to put this jigsaw together πŸ˜€

      Lies??? I like to call it “creative license.” Someone else put this together. I found it framed and hanging on the wall in the bathroom of a shop I was visiting. It’s only part of the picture. The part you can’t see is really really tacky. It’s kinda like those bad paintings on velvet LOL.

      • September 17, 2012 at 10:18 am

        Ok ok ‘creative license’ πŸ™‚ eeek, I am glad you didn’t show us us the other part of the picture πŸ™‚

  9. September 17, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Shame! And here I was ready to take notes πŸ™‚

      Gotcha…I know how to take moon photos…just don’t have the glass for the digital camera. Duh…I could shoot it in film and scan the image…heyyyyyyy….

  10. September 22, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    I’m puzzled.

  11. September 26, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Love this!
