Shots Taken While Waiting for the June Full Moon
Technically, the full moon is scheduled to appear tomorrow night.
Living on a tropical island, it's best to shoot it whenever you can.
There's no telling, when some rain squalls might come along and, ruin a night's fun.
That's a nickname for the Sigma 50-500 zoom lens, I used on the Pentax K1.
Coupled with a 1.4 converter, it became a 70-700MM lens.
The moon hadn't appeared over the horizon and lower marine layer of clouds.
After standing in an observation tower for awhile, I wanted to start shooting.
A boat, sailing by the Ikei Island bridge, caught my eye.
So, I figured it would make a colorful animated GIF and, shot several frames of the action.
Next, I turned around, facing north and, decided to take photos of some clouds.
The sky, was a rich blue, most of the day. My kind of weather.
Some people, see things in the shapes of clouds. Not me. My imagination ran away.
Name this cloud and, I can email you a better copy of it.
Way before the moon made an appearance, this bird showed up.
Later, I will look back through my files and, get its scientific name, which I can't recall.
After a few hours, in that tower, I may have gotten 15 photos of the, almost full moon.
And, 200 more photos, of stuff, I shot to keep from getting bored !
