Shooting the “Super Moon”


O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens… When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained, What is man, that thou art mindful of him?…
(Psalm 8:1,3,4)

I fumbled in the darkness of my back yard to the frenzied tune of frogs and crickets. I had a bit of trouble setting my camera up on my Manfrotto tripod in attempts to get that perfect shot of the Super Moon. I finally decided that a flashlight would be helpful and got everything in place. I shot this photo with my Canon EOS 7d using the Canon 70-300mm lens with image stabilizer. I was amazed at the detail I managed to get! I have tried many times to get a great shot of the moon and have to say I am pleased. I shot the image at f/5.6, 1/320 sec., ISO160, 300mm and used the spot metering mode.

Like my blog name suggests- I’m striving to be fully alive. Our Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) came so we could “have life and have it in abundance.” There’s so much to see, learn and experience in this blessed life! John 10:10- “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” (Yahshua/Jesus)
