Something a little different for today’s Monochrome Monday. During last week’s full moon, the moonrise happened while I was out on my afternoon walk with Spencer. I hadn’t planned on taking any photos, but it looked so lovely rising above a farm in my neighbourhood, I had to try to capture a few quick shots. It was also -28C and standing still for any length of time was not going to happen (neither was spending much time without my mittens on!)
Handheld with a fairly slow shutter speed, I managed to get a clear shot, but it was so dark and noisy, it wasn’t going to work as a traditional landscape shot. So I played around instead, and came up with this interpretation. It’s very dark and moody, but I liked it and thought I would share.
It’s seems like such a long time since I have done one of these posts! I was planning to do one last week, but woke up Sunday morning to a computer meltdown instead – not quite how I was planning to spend my day.
I’ve got a bit of a mixed bag from the last two weeks… Fingers crossed I can get back into the routine of weekly photos again 🙂
I had hoped perhaps to see some northern lights last night as the predictions were for a good show, but that didn’t pan out. The moon however was amazing when I went outside at 10, so I went back and grabbed my 150mm-600mm to try to get a few photos. I’m sure if I had put it on the tripod, it would be a bit sharper, but all in all, happy with the result.
