Default Just a Moon Shot

I had left the K-7 out in my car with the Bigma mounted on it...decided I needed it....went out to get it...and was struck by the moon as I walked back to the house....very bright and beautiful. I thought this came out nice for a handheld shot.

Don't know anything about a Bigma (sorry),
but that's a great handheld shot.

Cameanee, Bigma is slang for the Sigma 50-500mm lens that many of use primarily for wildlife shooting. Thanks for the kind words on the shot.

Hand held or not , this is a very sharp detailed moon shot indeed, well done.

Remarkably good for hand held, you've got a steady hand!

I think I see a footprint up there!!! You must have super steady hands to grab such a sharp image of the moon handheld with the Bigma!

Paul, I have to agree with everybody else, great shot!
Just out of curiosity... when you were struck by the moon... did it hurt much?

That really is a fine moon shot! Well done, amazing that it's hand-held with such a big, heavy lens.
