The moon is back after spending a week on the dark side (of itself?).
Here it is from about an hour ago:
It’s as good as I can do with my equipment. And a tighter shot on the moon means missing out on the clouds.
I have a strong desire to go wider. Nikon’s 20mm f/2.8 (link) is currently my lens of lust. But it won’t get close to the moon. This 300mm f/4 lens will, though. However, I don’t do nearly as much moon photography as I do weather or landscape. And I want to do more street photography, too. A 300mm lens might be good for creeping and peeping–but I’m not into that. A 20mm lens would be idea for indoors, walkabouts, landscape, and getting the ENTIRE STORM in one frame (rather than 3 or 5).
So perhaps the moon will have to wait. There are hundreds (thousands) of great moon shots online. They show the moon in stunning detail–but only the moon. How often can I take photos of the crescent moon photos until I realize that little changes between frames?
But the weather and the streets are constantly changing.
