The Moon In January

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:

The Ear Of An African Elephant

African Elephant viewed from the side showing how the ear is shaped like the continent of Africa

The guidebooks say that the ear of an African elephant is shaped like the continent of Africa.

They also say that the ear of the Asian elephant is shaped like India, but that’s another story.

Looking at this photo I took, yes indeed the ear of this African elephant is shaped like the continent of Africa.
