Skywatch Friday

18 Nov

As the moon shot I posted a while ago was well received I thought I’d pop this one in from while we were on holiday in Skiathos, i borrowed Chrissy’s 400mm lens and took this off the balcony at about 23:00 one night, the sky was so clear the moon seemed to jump out at us!….. superb scene in great atmosphere!…..>:)

    Wow!that is real stunning shot of the moon,
    i tried it handheld with a 28~300mm lens
    and it didn’t work out.

      Keep trying, I took at least six on this occasion and all the others suffered from movement!…… 🙂
