Week 19, Day 135, September 5, 2009, The Cow, The Fog, and The Moon

Many mornings as I drive to work I look and see so many photo opportunities that I can't take advantage. So, this morning I woke up early and decided to go out and try and take advantage. The fog was really cool, the sun rise amazing, and a full moon in the sky. Wow, what and incredible morning!!

In this photo I took advantage of a small pond beyond the willow tree that was letting off some fog from being warmer than the surrounding air. The moon was in a great position, and the cow was out eating breakfast. (I guess this is what is called an alignment of the stars.)

Lessons Learned:
  • I had to play with the moon in this shot in Photoshop so that it wouldn't be so washed out. I need practice on this one. It's much better, but not quite right. Any suggestions from you great photoshop users out there?
Photo details: Exposure time 1/30, Aperture f/8.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 120 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 194mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.

Love this! You can see the details in the moon too, that's such a challenge to me. Nice work!
