Another long exposure experiment today. The moon was surrounded by a thin veil of fog/haze tonight, causing the light to bounce around in the cold air. I think the shutter speed was around 2.5-3 seconds for this exposure. By setting the delayed response of the shutter by two seconds, I was able to push the shutter release and let the camera settle from the vibration the movement of the button creates to really keep the image as crisp as possible. And why not focus on the moon itself? Well, while I agree the moon is beautiful, I wanted to add another element of interest and have the focus be more of the haze then the features of the moon itself. I love the drop off of light!
