Experiment to see if I could get a decent shot of the moon using only a zoom lens. Nikon D7000 camera, handheld (no tripod), Tamron 70-300mm lens set to 300mm, ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/400 second exposure.
Blasting down country roads, playing tag with the thunderstorms. Good times…
Average altitude = 6000 to 8000 feet.
Roads = dirt.
Mountains = all around.
Temperature = 69 degrees.
Nearest town = 15 to 20 miles.
Percentage of time where I wasn’t exactly sure where I was = 80%
Favorite Tune = “Too Much Pork for Just One Fork” by Southern Culture on the Skids.
Fun = absolutely.
Please note: No cows were annoyed during the making of this post.
Looks like summer to me!
Near Priest Pass, Montana. Altitude about 6000 feet.
Tried to cross Mullen Pass. Denied! Too much snow on the road.
Abandoned house near Elkhorn, Montana.
If you look to the left of the peak (you may have to click to see the larger version of the image) you can see the moon rising over the clouds.
Another weekend roaming the countryside with my camera, dodging thunderstorms, annoying the cows…
