Somewhere over the moon, Luv really does exist.....x

Thought I'd try out my Canon 500mm lens on the moon early this morning.
Taken in Atlanta around 2:00 a.m....

Getting ready to leave on an Alaskan and Arctic Circle Adventure for 3 weeks.....Hoping to get some decent wildlife shots.

Wanted to start a fresh portfolio, thanks to all for your continued help and support, as I am always learning.

All C&C's welcome.....

Cheers and Lotsa Hugs,
Suzan xxx

Suzan, it's great to see you back with such a fabulous capture, this is superb, the detail is wonderful.

i'v been up at two every morning since the olympis started ( i love it ) and three nights ago the moon was full, so i set up my gear and took some shots. started to load onto my p.c and crash bang whollop. no idea what happened but it blow my compact flash card to bits. lost my shot and had to buy a new one.
anyway take care Suzan

Sorry for not always commenting on the photos. Here at Qatar Airways they believe a pilot should fly maximum hours. I would love more time on ePz and making comments. Sometimes I do, mostly I don't. All depends on the time I have. Have a splendid day!
