Moon's Glow

It was like, what, a week and a half back, that we had a full moon. I went outside with my new faux-SLR Nikon, that I love, and took some pictures. The sky was just beautiful. It wasn't just the moon, but the clouds all around it. It was amazing. Now some of the pics are slightly burred, because unless you set your camera up on a tripod, you are not going to get the steadiest picture. When you take shots of the moon, in the dark, the aperture and f-stop are really slow. Meaning you click the button to take a shot, and it takes about 8 seconds for the picture to be taken. The lens stays open for a long time...that might be only understandable to other people into photography, but I still thought I'd share the information.

So I thought I would share these pictures with you. Maybe, they are not that good, but for whatever reason, I am really proud of them, and I really love them. So here I am, sharing. All pictures can be clicked on to make them bigger.

Maybe they are nothing special, but I really felt proud and amazed at their beauty, which I can see anyway.

So pretty!
I love when I look at the moon after wild fires in california.
It's BRIGHT orange, because of the smoke.

Getting really beautiful shots of the moon isn't an easy task.


I understood about the shutter speed. I don't remember the technical terms, but it has to do with the camera trying to get as much light as possible to create the image clearly or something like that.
