Below is a short video in front of my place while it was lightly snowing in Tucson, Arizona. Though the snow where I was light compared to other parts of Tucson, AZ.
Here is the moon that was out on the night of October 12 2017 and the morning of October 13 2017.
For some reason I’ve wanted to take a lot of photo’s of the moon recently. At some point I might take a month and photograph the moon. I know there are/were other people who do take photographs of the moon over the course of the night or during a month, but I just want to give it a gander. Though I’m going to wait til I have a working car to do this, and to look for a good out-of-the-way spot with less light pollution to this small project.
Here is a photo of a Quarter Moon that I took this one evening in Arizona. It’s one of few photographs that I’ve taken of the Moon over the last four to six months.
As far as I know this it’s named a Quarter Moon; however, if it’s named differently please let me know and I’ll update this post.
I took these photographs of the moon late at night on the night on (or before) of the Summer Solstice (June 20, 2016). It took a bit of time to adjust some settings of my camera to able to capture a clear series of photographs of the moon. It was one of those times I had one of those “Ah Ha” moments when I discovered how to do something different and its like bringing two puzzle pieces together.
For the longest time I wanted to take clear photographs of the Moon and I finally did. Now I know how which setting and dials on the camera to change to do this I’m going to try to capture other phases of the Moon.
In the past when I took photos at night there was enough light from street/parking lights that I didn’t need to change it before. I wasn’t able to photograph the moon when it was rising above the horizon.
