Moon Over Charles City

Moon Over Charles City

f/5, 1/4, ISO-1600, 170mm

OK, Charles City is actually behind me and over my right shoulder in this shot, but I am lousy at thinking up names for my photos. I picked this shot up the morning I took the wind turbine picture. Moonset was 30 minutes before sunrise, so it was a great opportunity to get two shots when I expected to get only one. That means a lot when you are driving 90 miles to get it 🙂

I’m a little disappointed with this one as I didn’t get the focus right on the farm house. I feel like I should have been able to do better even though there was low light. I should have been able to get enough depth of field at that distance to compensate for not being able to see well enough to focus. I’m guessing the depth of field should have been at least a mile given my distance from the subject and the aperture setting. Oh well.

      Thanks! On reflection, I wonder if I shouldn’t have cheated and taken a proper exposure of the moon and pasted it into a proper exposure of the landscape. Something to keep in mind for the next time!
