Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

May 6th, Setting Moon.

I read that the moon set was 5:30am. I woke to my alarm set at 4:00am but went back to bed as the moon was still too high over the San Jacinto mountain range. Without an alarm I woke again, just before I lost the moon. Had I had the camera card in the camera, I wouldn't have had to run back in the house. But then I would have missed the distant trees hiding the bottom of the moon.

Canon EOS 5D Mark ll; EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens
1/80 sec at f/5.6L
Manual exposure (used live view zoomed to 10X to focus)
ISO 100

Used the 2 second timer, instead of a cable release, while camera was on a tripod.
