The Moon

The moon, Earth's only natural occurring satellite. A giant piece of rock floating in outer space. It is a wonderful site. Although it doesn't emit light of it's own, it reflects light from the sun so we can see at night. I recently taken some moon photos from my house, including the full moon. I hope you like them! I missed the lunar eclipse, sorry. One night of no sleep and I have very bad headache the next day, so I didn't say up. HAHA

These photos was all taken with my Canon EOS 7D at 300mm on my USM lens. I will tell you what settings I used under each photo. Hopefully it will help you take some better photos yourself! :) Also, click the photo to see the full size.

Anyways, this photo, it says I used 280mm focal length. This is the only exception.

So, full moon was yesterday. That was all the good photos I took. I hope you have enjoyed it! Please leave me a comment if you loved it and share with your friends. You know, this is the first time I even tried to take a photo of the moon. Surprised I can see all the craters on the moon! Wow, what a strong camera and lens. Anyways, please like my blog on Facebook. You can also do it in the box on the top of the right sidebar.
