Full Moon Okinawa Japan Jan 27 2012 (Photos)
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.
