Moonrise, June 6, 2009

The full moon breaking above the tree line in my back yard at about 9:30 PM this evening.  I grabbed the camera because the clouds looked downright surreal.  Nikon D700, ISO 200, Nikon 180mm f2.8 ("Leni lens"), manual exposure f/4.0 @ 1/8s.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.0, cropped and applied Nikon Landscape profile.  The camera's auto color balance captured my perception very well.

Cool shot. I'm looking around for Lon Chaney, Jr.

Thanks, Ray. There is a bit of Chaney Sr. in the photographer.
