This gorgeous sunset to the west, and to the east…
The last sunset of November; dramatic clouds and mist rolling down the canyon – certainly a beautiful way to end the month! I took another stab at HDR (High Dynamic Range), but I needed a couple more exposures to bring out the detail in the trees.

Last night’s full moon. A slightly different take on the challenge for this week – got a crazy idea in my head that the moon would make a good history subject… Also missed the lunar eclipse this morning, had the wrong time zone so instead of getting up at four, I got up at five thirty. =(
This challenge is a little different from the others – the rule of thirds. Instead having a certain subject to shoot, this is a type of shooting. Instead of centering the subject, you shoot the picture with the subject in the left, right, bottom, or top of the viewfinder.
I didn’t get too many pictures with all the rain that’s been pouring down on us lately, but I did get these.
You know the digital photography class that I’m taking as an elective this year in school? Well, I just discovered yesterday on my first day of school, that it’s only a one semester class, and it starts in the spring, not fall. As you can imagine, I was upset. I already waited almost three months, and now I have to wait another four months!
This week’s challenge – a bit more challenging, but still exciting – was shooting for the moon. Literally. Anyway, the clouds that have been hanging around, threatening snow didn’t exactly cooperate, so most of these are from the archives.
The clouds parted briefly, and this is what I got…
This one and all the ones that follow are from the archive. If I remember right, I had the camera set to landscape, inside SCN.
Lucky shot. . . On auto, I think.
Landscape, SCN. I discovered that the best time to get a great moon shot is early morning, as the sun is coming up, or when late afternoon, before the sun sets.
On another note, I’m curious to see what kind of camera you all use…
