Shoot the moon

A quick photo of the moon I shot the other night. It was cloudy all day and I could see the moon peeking through the clouds every once in a while, but mostly it was obscured. When I was nearly home the clouds broke for a few minutes and I found a field where I could park my Jeep and set up for this shot.

Its surprising how bright the moon actually is. In order to get this shot I had to use settings that I would use if I were photographing a subject in full sun. This brought out the detail in the moon’s surface and also made the sky around it totally, perfectly black.

I shot this with a 200mm lens at f5.4, ISO200.
