It’s a quarter moon…

It’s a quarter moon in a ten cent town
Time for me to lay my heartaches down…

1/40 sec at f/11, ISO 100, 200 mm lens w/ 2X extender on 70-200 lens, Canon 60D

I borrowed my son’s 2X extender to capture tonight’s first quarter moon. He may or may not get it back.

    • Sandi, thanks. The moon is one of my favorite subjects and I’ve been disappointed in my shots since I sold my Nikon and the 300 mm lens. I couldn’t quite get the image with my 200 mm lens until I used Jason’s extender. I still am looking for the perfect moon photo op with the moon rising above the desert mountain or above a city skyline or farm house. Each time I’ve seen this, I was in a car and my camera was home. I have planned for the shot, scouting out sites, watching the “moon rise time tables” etc., but something has always prevented the shot. Some day!
