Full Moon Photography.

Aurora has been at a very low level lately, so I decided to head out and capture a few images using the full moon as my light source.  With plenty of fresh snow on the ground this got very bright!  Here are a few samples of what can be captured using the moon as your main light.

f/4.5 @ 24 mm, 10s, ISO 800

This farm was just off Hwy 16 West of Edmonton.  Right next to this farm is a beautiful railway bridge.  If you didn’t look closely for the stars you would think this was shot during the afternoon!

Happy Shooting!

admin - Yes Oliver it’s pretty amazing how much light the moon gives off! Take care!

Olivier - Funny eh? Did the same thing two nights ago. When I showed the wife what I did she could not believe these where night shots. Untill I showed her the stars.
