I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

bronxelf says:

Hell no.

The camera in the treo is *crap*.

This came from a Nikon D70 with a long lens.

Sunni- Thanks. Testament to the wonders of a good Nikon. more than anything else. Basically, the moon pretty much just sat there and posed.

Geodyne says:

Funny, because as Rocket and I were heading out this evening, I noticed Mama Moon hangin' out there all big and pretty. When she was low in the sky here, she was a gorgeous shade of yellow. Were this two days ago, I'd have gotten sentimental and cried that we noticed the same thing on the same night a whole continent away. Tonight, however, I just say, "That's pretty fucking cool."

bronxelf says:

Thanks guys-- really just a good camera.

Autumncat-- a nikon 70-300.

alfie says:

wow, Buffy anyone? Once more with feeling?

16th Jan 2006, 10:28

bronxelf says:

Funny, as I've never watched buffy. :)

Your scarf, btw is becoming a blanket. cope.

16th Jan 2006, 10:28

alfie says:

I saw below, but didnt want to say anything. I *know* how fast and well you knit, so Im just hoping it's not all becoming too daunting :)

16th Jan 2006, 10:32

Euphro says:

Great shot! I love shooting the moon, even with only a Canon S50. I particularly like the bumpy shadows along the terminator where the sun is shining through crater walls :)

16th Jan 2006, 10:32

bronxelf says:

Alfie-- No not daunting, just *REALLY* long. Would be almost ludicrous as a scarf, even for you. So I think perhaps a blanket would be better. :)

I'm also working on an actual scarf (not binary) for kiku, so Ive been switching on and off.

Euprho: This wasn't QUITE full. I'm thinking 99 or 98% of total visibility. I didn't check to see the time of the moon turning over, though usually I know that fairly precisely.

16th Jan 2006, 10:35

bronxelf says:

Thanks much. The moon makes a lovely model.

16th Jan 2006, 10:58

Euphro says:

Yes, you can see by the partial shadow over the Mare Crisium (nice, self-contained basin at top) that it's just off full :)

Ah, I'd just missed it:

wonderful shot B'elf

And Euphro I just saw fuzzy edges and vaguely wondered why! Questions only half thought are answered!

Spike says:

ace picture miss elf, really like the detail and the imperfect circle of the moon, go nikon!
