We’re recovering from our holiday. After all the commotion, quiet time is so so welcome. Do you feel the same way? This week’s photo prompt on Focus 52 is Silent Night, and to me, nothing says silent more than a gorgeous and (almost) full moon. (I took these photos on Thursday, and the full moon was officially Friday.) This is my first time trying to take pictures of the moon, and I admit I did a quick Google search for some simple guidelines and help. My first shots were too white and blurry. And then I realized that if I sped up my shutter speed, then the craters and details became clear. Plus, the glow is so lovely and warm. And now I’m dying for some more focal length to get closer.
