Floyd County moonscapes

Another beautiful autumn moon over Floyd County. Been shooting moon photos for more than 55 years and with newer equipment and long lenses, getting sharper and more detailed images is easier. This month’s full moon was captured with a 400 mm Canon lens with a 2X Tele-Extender on a EOS-1DS digital body from the top

By the light of a silvery moon

In the not-so-misty moonlight

As a photographer, I’ve long been fascinated by the moon. I remember long nights back in the 1960s with my trusty Nikon F on a tripod, with a 300mm manual focus lens, trying to capture the moon on Tri-X film and slow shutter speeds. The 300 didn’t get my image as close as I wanted

Spring moon

Even when it’s not full, the moon in the sky is something to see. Caught this while photographing soccer at Floyd County High School on Monday night. Photographed hand-held on a Canon EOS-1D X with a 300mm Canon f/2.8 lens.
