Magical Moon


Christmas Full Moon, December 25, 2015 … It was indeed a magical moon when I was finally able to capture this shot, after many, many attempts. Trees visible without washing out the bella luna, it was a difficult feat indeed. Perseverance pays.

Luna Noel – En Las Estrellas


The last full moon of 2015 made her debut Saturday night, December 25th, and she was such the spectacular bella luna I have grown to adore over the years. Framed between the branches of a majestic tall tree, the last picture I took (before my battery totally died!), the universe (and my camera settings) just happened to convene at the perfect time, revealing the beautiful full moon nestled against the background of stars.

Taken from Planet Earth, with my beloved Canon EOS 70D camera, EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, with 1250 ISO, 1/3200 sec at 1.8.

P.S. Had this Earthling thought diligently before leaving town, I would have kept the 70-300 L lens on said camera, and brought my tripod (or at least monopod!). Alas, I had stars in my eyes!

Next Christmas full moon photography attempt: 2034 😀

The 4th of July is wildly celebrated here in America. I always enjoy photographing fireworks, you never know what you’re going to end up with! Taken at Southwood in Tallahassee, Florida.

P.S. Notice the moon appearing in some of these shots!

Bella Luna

The hubby and I took out the telescope and used it for the camera lens the other night. Bella Luna, such a beautiful moon. 🙂

Day After a Full Moon

So I was just a few hours late of capturing the last full moon, but probably best that it wasn’t in totality since I managed to see some mighty impressive crater shadows. Here are two photos, one of the “full” moon, and the other one focusing on the craters.

You don’t realize how deep these craters are until you see the shadows!
The moon in full-blown beauty mode! 🙂
