Moonset in Reno   Leave a comment

I read that the Moon is one of the hardest shots to get. I totally agree.

I don’t have expensive equipment nor do I use a tripod the majority of the time. Thats because I have learned over the last 11 years that there is a lot of decisions to be made before pressing the button. I did a lot of reading and “trial and error” experimentation.

The Moonset is the worst time to take a shot of the Moon for me, due to “atmospheric haze” here in Reno, as it lowers behind the mountains. It was the same when I was in California. I have found that most of the problems that I have, can be corrected in post-production. Just not “atmospheric haze”, so far. I must admit, most of my very good shots of the moon are still a complete mystery to me. I like to blame my shortcoming on my Moon shots on, I am getting older and my hands getting shakier. Probably not if I would just use my tripod. I am going to stick with getting older for now.

Older or not, I love doing it because it is so relaxing. Even when doing five miles or more. I will not be giving up, hiking or walking, any time soon. So there will be a lot more photos coming.

Thank you for stopping by to see my photos. Enjoy your coming week.  

Celebrate the Sunrise, Toast the Sunset and Enjoy everything in between!
