The Moon….

Like a lot of people, I like to take photos of the moon. Not just the moon though, the moon with other stuff in the photo. Otherwise it’s just a  photo of the moon. I don’t have the high powered telephoto lens to get the close up shots, nor am I an Astronaut. I also don’t do astrophotography. I just like to try to get a nice snap of the moon when it’s showing off a bit. No point giving too much explanation with these photos as is my usual thing. Each one is a photo of the moon, with some other stuff in the frame. I’ll just tell you where I was when I took the photo. Oh, and it’s harder than you think to photograph the moon. None of these were taken using a tripod. So there.

The moon, way up there, I know. But it's a big sky. Foxton Beach

Misty moon. Ok I'm stretching the other stuff in the frame here as the other stuff is just mist. Hunterville.

Let's face it, this looks like the end of the world. Amazing clouds with accompanying moon over Whangaparaoa Peninsular.

So, the next time I post anything on here. I will have upgraded my camera gear. I’m not sure when that will be. Keep an eye out. I hope you enjoyed the moons
