Beachmere Moon

Mr Alan Warren invited me along to a gathering of photographers at Beachmere (waaay, waaay away). The shoot started at 3pm but I couldn't break away from home until 8pm and I arrived there at 10pm. Alan came to meet me - I thought it was just at the beach, but it turned out to be a 10 minute walk over beach, mangroves and a wade across a creek! Once there, most of the other photographers were packing up to head home. Alan and Mick stuck around and we took a few more shots. Taken using my mostly-broken remote-shutter, on for 70 seconds. Extra cuteness points: Evelyn saw this thumbnail in Lightroom and started shouting, "Moon! Moon!" Now whenever she sees the laptop, she wants to see pictures of the moon.

Project365 [167/365]: Lunar Eclipse

[2011-06-16] Lunar eclipse this morning. Thanks to Shell for the heads up! I don't really have the appropriate kit for capturing the moon at night, but I was out there anyway with my mini tripod balanced on the car roof, trying to find the balance between ISO (noisy) and shutter speed (any more than 2 seconds and the moon moves). It was very pretty nonetheless.

Project365 [138/365]: Full Moon Morning

[2011-05-18] Full moon, 6am at Booval. I wasn't prepared for such a view of the moon while walking to the train station in the morning, and had to hop back home to fetch the long lens in order to capture this.
