Sunday Nights Full Moon

 

Tonight's  full moon rises just eight days before the vernal equinox, or spring. The Full Worm Moon will light up the skies today (March 12) and it marks the last full moon of the winter season.

MARCH 2017 (3 of 3)

I took this photo all though very cropped with my fave lens my 55-300mm telephoto zoom lens with Vibration Reduction built in  as all my lenses  have and all are light weight to  and I take all my photos hand held .  I use this  lens all the time especially for my nature photography    . My settings  for this shot were ISO 800  at 1/400 at F/ 10 taking photos of the moon has been a challenge in the damp cold  air as the air creates an extra glow around the moon and distorts its look in photos for  there can be to much reflection with in my lens , however I could use a polarized lens but that would be to easy  lol ! I have always been intrigued by the moon  and found it to be such a beautiful sight in the night sky's !

                                                                            Spring is only 8 day away WHOOHOO !

                                                                               Until next time .

Beautiful photo, good to know all the specs. I'm calling it the birthday moon as it came between my birthday and our daughters.
