There’s a story behind this shot.


  1. Wow! Not bad! “not bad” is an understatement! It’s pretty cool! Did you really take this photo? It looked so… awesome! Photography is a very expensive hobby for me.. how i wish i can buy my own camera! :)

    Hey really nice pic! I like how detailed it is and how good of a shot it is. Makes me want to go buy a better camera….

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeet! I think I can almost see a lunar rover if I squint and angle my head just right. Are you sure you weren’t using a telescope?! That’s an amazing lens. Good customer service story, too.

    Be careful… looking at pictures like this can cost you a lot of money if you’re even thinking about a new camera. I should know! ;-)

    Glad you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

    It was nicely taken photo of the moon. It was catchy and simple. I do love photography too but don’t have the time to create a separate blog for the hobby.

    the moon is amazing

  8. That is some impressive use of your telephoto lens! I love how you can actually see the texture of the craters on the uppermost parts of the moon. I bet this photo would look excellent as a backlit acrylic photo panel! This photograph really makes me want to trade in my point-and-shoot Panasonic for a camera with the capability to take such stunning shots. But of course the camera is nothing without the photographer! Well done!

    I found myself beginning to howl! AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Wasn’t this the wolf moon?

    I think technically it was the next day, but yes!

    Man you really haven’t had much luck with cameras until now. I’m glad you found one and it does look like a beaut.

    I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of having the 70-300mm lens. Very nice picture, especially for shooting it handheld!
