The Moon In January

full moon against a dark sky

Tamara noticed the moon as we were on our way back home. When we got home, she grabbed her binoculars to go out and look at it. So I got my camera, and took a few shots with my Nikon D500 with the lens at 300mm. The exif data says that I shot at 1/1000 second at f14 and 400ISO.

I didn’t desaturate the colours, it’s just how the shot came out. When we were looking at the moon it was ‘moon yellow’.

P.S. I see I wrote about the moon once before, in 2012.

Here’s another shot from tonight:

    Very nice. I’m glad I saw the moon last night, as we have steady rain today.


    1. We had rain yesterday 🙂

    Glad to be Johnny-on-the-spot regarding the Man and Woman in the Moon, David! 😇

  3. I’m always reminded of a Navel Orange when viewing shots of the Moon; )
    Great shot from ‘tonight’ (the 11th?)


    1. A new twist on navel gazing 🙂


    1. Yes, a name with which to excite the imagination.

        In my language the full moons don’t have any names …
