It is getting darker, earlier in the evenings now and so astrophotography is becoming less of a tiring activity. The Delightful Mr F and I found ourselves looking out of the window at a lovely, almost full moon. “That,” we said to each other, “needs photographing!”
Within 20 minutes we had camera gear, tripods and torches at the ready as we headed out to the local woods to shoot the moon. The Delightful Mr guarded us against any wrong-uns that may have been hanging about in the woods whist we photographed. To be honest, the likelihood of getting into any trouble around near where we live is limited to falling in a ditch, or being accosted by the squirrels*.
I decided to go a little off piste and have a try at a “true colour” shot. Not bad for a first try… needs improvement, but we all start somewhere.
What do you think, do you like the colour version, or the more traditional black and white?
*I’ll have to tell you about the thieving squirrel in our garden sometime… He reformed last year and gave us back all the things he had stolen by leaving them outside our backdoor. It was slightly disconcerting.
