Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

This is the day after the full moon where the waning gibbous moon and the blazing planet Jupiter are the closest together for the month. A waxing gibbous moon appears high in the east at sunset. It’s more than half-lighted, but less than full. The word gibbous comes from a root word that means hump-backed.

I used the Canon 7D set at ISO3200 with the Canon 400mm plus a 1.4x extender. The exposure was f7.1 @ 1/125 sec. with mirror lock-up and self time shutter release at 10 sec. to keep the vibration to a minimum.
