Full Moon

Well, today is the day of the full moon! So, that should either bring up thoughts of old high school pranks, or werewolves - or both at the same time. Last night I grabbed the opportunity to photograph the full moon. Moon shots are extremely tricky, because of the brightness factor in the night sky, and the distance factor. I used a tripod and a 300mm zoom lens with this shot (because of my sensor on the camera, actual zoom was about 480mm). Stopping down the exposure is also crucial to capturing the detail. Here's the final product, and I was able to get it all done before the hair and fangs kicked in..... hoooowwwlllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
