Moonshine at 6am

I took this at 6am this morning.


I had a a very odd dream and was wide awake after concluding (in the dream) that albeit a very comforting story, it was in essence only a dream.

I am not at all a morning person, which is why this was particularly tough to take. The moon was so bright that I was able to change my lenses and set up the tripod without turning on any lights (indoors).


This is my first attempt at shooting the moon. I tried 16 shots with the last one bearing relatively decent results. Then I got tired and resigned to bed.
