Shots from last nights full moon

I tried to take a few shots last night with the amazing full moon we had. While I wasn’t able to get the best shots of the moon itself (need to try some different metering next time), I was able to take some pretty awesome shots using the moon as my source for light.

A friend of ours gave me a tripod for my birthday earlier this year, and this was the first time I really got to use it. Almost all of these exposures were over 1 second, with a lot of them being more around 20-30 seconds (for example, in one, you can see the light trails over time).

I plan on trying this a bit more often soon, especially with these clear cold nights. While its pretty cold standing around (was about 35 degrees while taking these), the crisp clear sky makes it very easy to take awesome shots!
