early evening


moon rising

stars will soon appear

to weave magic

I am yet to explore the art of night photography especially the stars so this is as close as I have come so far. Its amazing to think people have actually flown there stood on the surface and returned to earth. Ah the world of Physics.

  1. A nice haiku Denis. The only time I get a nice night shot of the the moon is when its crazy and cloudy with wind pushing the clouds. The contrast make fabulous photos. I have yet to get any good shots of stars:)


        1. This moon shot was with a 150-500 telephoto that is permanently on a Pentax DSLR body with a monopod or tripod. I took a long time procrastinating before buying it, but a decision to get serious about bird photography was the main reason I bought it. In the post before this I used the same lens to do close ups of tiny flowers and it also worked . I guess cost and main reasons for photographing will guide you Pat. I have 3 other lens’ an 18 – 250 that is usually on my recently bought second Pentax DSLR. The others are a 35-105 Macro and an 18-35 that I interchange with the 18-250. The last 2 are Pentax lens and the first 2 are Sigma. I probably do 90% of my photography with the 18-250 it is very versatile.


  2. Night photography is super hard -_- I took more than 200 in a session and only 3 was without blur *sigh* Steady hand and tripod are essential. Please do share your take/tips on night photos~~
