Moon and stars

The moon was huge tonight so I though I go out to photograph it. I’ve decided instead to take some long exposure shots with the sky.



35mm, f/8 at 15 seconds as ISO 1600


 35mm, f/8 at 20 seconds at ISO 200


35mm, f/8 at 15 seconds at ISO 1600

One side of the sky was dominated by clouds and the moon, and the other side was clear.

Equipment used: Nikon D40, Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G.

Nigh time beauty

After a long break, I have a bunch of pics to share. I’ll start slowly with a few night shots. I hope I’ll have time to post the rest soon.

Equipment used:

Camera – Nikon D40; Lens – Nikkor 50mm and 300mm

The Moon

Since a long time, I’ve been thinking about shooting the stars. Of course starting with the moon seemed the logical step. Equipment & stats (unfortunately I don’t have  proper lens suited for night sky photography):
