Playing with my camera

We had a fabulously clear night last night.  Even though the moon isn't quite full it was giving a spectacular display.  I was playing with the zoom on my camera and thought I'd share.
 As the sun was setting, the moon took on a slightly orange sheen.
 As it got darker, the sky took on a beautiful soft black color and the moon glowed.
Have I mentioned recently that I LOVE my new camera??

  4. Beautiful! Hubby got to do a moonlight kayak paddle to False Cape State Park the other night and I was so jealous I missed it! Next time I'm going even if I have to pack sleeping kids into the kayak!

    1. Ooo... a moonlight kayak sounds lovely. Hope you get to go. I can't imagine the kids would sleep through it.

  5. Nice shots! What kind of camera did you get?

    We just got a new Canon 60D and my husband got some good moon shots using a Canon EF 70-200 zoom lens.

    1. My hubby got me a Canon PowerShot SX 40 HS a while ago when my old camera was on its way out. It isn't terribly fancy but it takes fabulous shots. The best moon shots were between 100 and 140x. I was amazed that they came out that clear since I wasn't using a tripod and at that zoom it is hard to keep it steady. Of course, it was propped up on the deck rail.

      And thanks for stopping by! Welcome.
