When I met Mr. Wild Dingo, his home was filled with tons of sun themes. I like the sun. I like sunny days. But if given the choice of my favorite celestial object, sun, moon or stars, I'll pick the moon every time. And autumn harvest moons are my favorites.
I don't know why I'm fascinated with it or why it makes me so happy but it does. It's probably why I'm an insomniac. It's funny how bed time arrives just when things get interesting.
I took these shots right out my office window. I shot them in shutter priority and played with shutter speed. I learned a few things. Longer shutter speed does not necessarily mean a great moon shot. In fact if it's too long, what you gain in lighting you lose in the crispness of the moon.
Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on the clear, still lake.
