Full Moon Appears Twice
The full moon at the beginning of this month is called the Full Buck Moon, in the USA.
That's because it is the season when bucks sprout new antlers.
The names, Thunder Moon and Hay Moon are also used, in north America.
This photo was taken at 9:15PM JUL 2, 2015.
Camera: Pentax K3
Lens: Pentax 300mm
Exposure: f/16 1/60 ISO 100
Black clouds covered the moon so, I headed back to the office.
The moon reappeared as I was nearing the gate to my shop and, it gave me an idea.
It would have to be done, fully manual but, I wanted to try something.
The Sigma 50-500mm lens and a 1.4X converter, would give a focal length of 700mm.
It got me a little bit closer to the moon at 9:41PM
Exposure: f/16 1/125 ISO 100
