A February moon sets into the clouds of an eerie western Salt Spring sky.
Note to photographers:
Because the moon is moving and the clouds are moving even faster, a fairly fast shutter speed is required; in this case 1/125 sec. And a long lens is required; in this case 420mm with an aperture of 4.5 (4.0 max and a bit of sharpness). This shot then required and ISO of 3200. Because I happened upon this scene with only seconds to catch the moon before it slid behind the clouds and mountains, there wasn’t time to think or to get the camera onto a tripod —just elbows on a railing. What would you have done differently?
