Did you see the "Full Beaver Moon" last night?
According to the Almanac, the Beaver Moon is a time to set your beaver traps before the swamp freezes, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs or its a time for the beavers to make ready for winter. Either way, we now colder weather is coming soon.
I love to photograph the moon and have figured out the manual settings to get the moon to be focused correctly.
The only problem was, it wasn't quite dark and I wanted to see the silhouette of the trees and still get the moon correctly. I played with some settings and didn't have any success.
I got to noticing the moon was trailing in my picture, as I had ever so slight movement while perched on top of a fence post. (I left the tripod in the house, when I went out back.) Then I remembered reading about "writing" with the camera. Well, my attempt looks like scribble and I obviously have a long way to go before this is anything fabulous, but I thought it was very interesting. Can you see the "J"? I started out by attempting to write my name then it just turned to jibberish!
the 'writing' is pretty cool! i've managed to get some good moon/tree silhouette shots in the past but couldn't tell you how i did it. tripod - yes! :)ReplyDelete
Love your first picture! I'm of no help with the writing..I've not even heard of it. No photographer here! ha!ReplyDelete
