Fall Skies

Fall skies
 
In 2 days Fall officially strolls into Bear Woods. We are seeing lots of signs of the changing of the seasons, dew covering everything in the mornings, sprinkles of color in the trees, orb weaver spiders with dew on their webs, and crisp clean air in the morning. It allowed me to go out and do a few shots of the moon this morning with little or no haze in the sky. The detail you can see is incredible!
 
Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD lens on a Nikon D-500, Manual Exposure mode, f8, ISO 200, resulting in a shutter speed of 1/200th of a second (which by the way is the “Sunny 16” rule of a side lit object with little haze, no metering required), Sirui P424S carbon fiber monopod and L10 head, processed in Lightroom CC. #WithMyTamron, #TamronImageMaster, #SiruiUSA, #SiruiProfessional

    Sunny 16?

      The Sunny 16 Rule states “if shooting a front lit object, on a clear non-polluted day, your exposure is 1/ISO of the film/sensor at f16”. So in this case it is 1/ISO 200 or 1/250th of a second at f16. Since there is side lighting on the moon, you open up to f11. Since there has to be a little atmospheric haze between here and the moon you open up about another stop, thus 1/250th of a second at f8.
