The Snow Moon, hold the Eclipse


The Snow Moon, hold the Eclipse.
Last night was a full moon, known as a Snow Moon, and an eclipse. There was some haze in front of the moon and you could see the eclipse, but, well, it was kind of boring in an eclipse sort of way. It was more of a shadow thing vs a classic eclipse kind of thing, in my opinion. So instead I waited until about 10pm or so and then grabbed the backpack, the monopod and went out in search of my image. After I opened the back door, walked to the end of the porch, set down the backpack, got out the camera, I created my image. Kind of anti-climatic, right? I’m excited there was an eclipse and a “Snow Moon”, but it sure seemed to be built up as a once in a lifetime event. So here is my image of the moon, hold the eclipse, and I know the comet is out there, just hiding behind the clouds…
Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD G2 lens on a Canon 7Dii, Manual Exposure mode using the…”Sunny 16 Rule”…f16, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/250th of a second due to the slight haze in the sky (remember the full moon is nothing more than a front lit object), Sirui P424S monopod and L10 head, ThinkTank Airport Commuter backpack, processed in Lightroom CC as a B&W by moving the Saturation slider to the left. #WithMyTamron, #TamronImageMasters, #SiruiUSA, #SiruiPro, #ThinkTankPhoto, #MindShiftGear
