White Moon and Golden Clouds

The moon was rising just as the day was ending.


I was able to capture both the golden clouds and the details on the moon as the exposure was balanced between the two.moon_2036

As the minutes went by, the sky got darker and so did the clouds.moon_2088

As the clouds got darker and the brightness of the moon remained the same, I had to pick: to expose for the clouds or the moon…

It’s the moon against the dark blue sky.

The moon at sunset – my pick for this week’s Photo Challenge.

      Shooting the moon starts with trial and error. Having clear skies and the right lighting helps.
      I’m sure you’ll get your moon shots too!
      Continue enjoying your travels!
