Does the world really need more images of that beautiful orange moon?

Well, here’s me adding to the gazillion pictures circulating the internet.

A professional photog friend has been shaming me into using the manual settings

on our camera

so I dragged out the tripod last night,

played with those mysterious-to-me settings,

stayed up well past my boat bedtime

and took a shot or three.

Next one of these opportunites won’t come around until 2033.

Who knows if I’ll still be around

and can you imagine how shaky these old hands will be?

I got a little better as the evening wore on

but then…

I tripped over the tripod getting this rather pretty shot,
packed it all in and went to bed.
Those auto settings are still my favourites though.
Just point and click baby!
