Photo Friday: Howl at the Moon

When you see a full moon setting, it can be an amazing sight, and fun to capture, but when you take a photograph of it the moon can be rather disappointing.  The reason for this, unknown to many, is that when you use a standard lens on your camera, it’s not capable of bringing the moon in close.  If you want to bring the moon in, you are going to need a little zoom.  My best zoom, that made it look close to what my eye saw, I had to go with a 300 mm lens.

In today’s photos, I decided to make the moon even more impressive, I used a 900 mm lens.  The same effect can work with a setting sun.
