Moon Shot 13th January

Following on from my previous post, the moon was quite visible in the afternoon sky when I took my pictures. I cropped one which is below:

Not particularly brilliant, so I got the camera out again and took some more today.
It won’t be a full moon for a couple of days yet, but I was rather pleased with these.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Very nice. What power zoom lens did you use for that last shot?

    • Good point Fandango. I have a Canon powershot SX540 HS camera with everything built in because I am a ‘snapper’ and wanted something easy to operate. The manual says
      “When distant subjects are too far away to enlarge using the optical zoom,
      use digital zoom for up to about 200x enlargement.”
