REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Week 33 of Project 52

I am definitely challenged when it comes to photographing the moon...even a "supermoon."  This time, I researched what to do, what settings for my camera, etc., etc.  I was behind before I started, because I forgot the moon now rises more to the south; it was already past "moon rise" when I started out.  My husband drove me a little out into the country so there would be no utility wires or rooftops.  My photos looked terrible when I checked them; they seemed underexposed and out-of-focus.   We returned to the house in frustration, but I decided to try again.  I'm still not pleased with the focus, but my 70-300mm lens has been a disappointment in that area.   Here is my version of the second "supermoon" of 2014, definitely looking supernatural because of the massive wildfires in this part of the country.

Wow! You got an impressive photo! You would really laugh at my tries. I failed totally. The orange glow is a bonus in your image, too.

I think you did well... too bad it takes devastating fires to give the gorgeous 'red' color...

This is definitely a magnificent moon shot Evelyn. Wonderful colors and features present. I had the 50mm lens on my camera at the time, so my moon shot looks like a button in the sky.
