Finding art in nature is always a highlight to any moment I spend behind my camera. So often we get caught up in our day to day lives that the brief and special moments we observe are fleeting. A subject I cannot photograph enough is the moon. The moon like few other subjects consistently captures my imagination.
This weekend I had the pleasure of using a Canon 800mm f/5.6 lens and made full use of it in capturing February’s full moon. With limited visibility due to fast moving storm clouds, a horizon level photo was not in the cards, but as the moon peeked through the clouds at sunset I was able to capture this composition (that mildly resembles a big eye in the sky).
