Photography – Moon photographs

Brothers & sisters…, the weather in the area where I live is not so great lately, it is almost raining every evening. Weeks ago I was hoping to have full moon shots but I was not so lucky, it was very cloudy and eventually raining. Two days ago I got the chance to see the moon, not a full moon yet but I was eager to get some shots. Especially I saw the cloud was about to take over the blue sky. It was just about after sunset, the sky is mostly still bright and blue. I think this is the blue hour I often hear and read some photographers talk about.I grabbed my Canon 77D camera, put the 70-300 mm lens on and started to shoot. I use my favourite aperture priority setting, set the aperture at the lowest number my lens get at the desired focal length. For the above photo I used 300 mm and still did some cropping to get a closer subject. ISO 1600 was used to get a nice bright photograph.

For the above photograph, I wanted to get the cloud appear in my frame, so I used a shorter focal length to cover a wider area. Gladly I still managed to get the nice blue sky and some light cloud approaching the bright shinning golden moon.Well it was fun to be able to get some shots of the moon and the sky, minutes later the cloud completely covered the moon.
