FULL BUCK MOON, July 21

    

When I first stepped outside at 9:30 I couldn't even see the moon.  It wasn't until I was walking back to the patio that I spotted it peeking out from behind the neighbor's trees.  I went back in for a little while and when I returned just after 10:00 the moon had risen completely and was shining brightly.   The settings were easy to adjust because my camera saves a little file on each picture so you can duplicate the settings that worked on an earlier picture.  Unfortunately I was still having difficulty with my focusing. I hate how bad my eyes have gotten because it makes focusing my camera at night a... nightmare!

On the left photo, did you add anything to it?
I see a little indian head on the bottom of the moon....cool shot!
I tried moon shots this past weekend & missed out on the full moon on Thursday.
I will post some.  I tried Bracketing, suggested by Steven from (sometimes)photoblog.
