The Moon

I woke up a while ago, and couldn't get back to sleep, so popped my head outside and saw this near-full moon. Decided to try for a photo. A tripod-mounted 500mm lens with 2x converter gave this result:

Neighbours probably thought I was a peeping-tom, as I stood on my balcony in my slippers and pyjamas, wielding a huge lens, but many are the embarrassments the photographer must endure to get that perfect shot! (For a hilarious account of the downside of being a wildlife photographer, have a read of THIS BOOK. Absolutely brilliant!)


  1. Amazing!
    You have done a great job not to get asleep again..

    Have a nice day!

  2. Clear skies in Swansea? Surely not! Great photo Jeremy.
