Full Moon Okinawa Japan Jan 27 2012 (Photos)

Tonight's Full Moon Through the Sigma

These photos were taken between 7:23 and 7:28PM January 27, 2013.

The evening started-off looking pretty grim, for moon photography.

It was cloudy, cold and windy so, I figured there wouldn't be any full moon visible.

When I stepped out the front door of my office, there it was, a brilliant full moon.

So, I ran back inside to grab a tripod and camera.

The photo above shows exactly how it appears at 500mm focal length.

Just in case any dizzy blondes are reading this, I have to tell you something.

The size of the moon didn't really change this much in five minutes.

All three photos were taken with the Sigma 50-500 at 500mm.

So, when I downloaded the camera, they all looked like photo #2.

Cropping the photos at different dimensions made the size of the moon change.

Alison, Thank you. That was rteally an unexpected shot. It looked as if the moon would never be visible, earlier that night.
