This shot was taken with my DL and the DA50-200 lens. I had to wait for the clouds to darken the moon a bitso thatitand the trees would be properly exposed. It was an 8 second exposure and the clouds were moving very quickly. What do you think?

Great shot.

Full Moon. High winds at high altitude blowing the clouds across the sky, yet not enough wind at ground level to shake the tree limb during an 8 second exposure.

The photography gods were with you.

Tcav, Thanks for the comment. I never thought about that, but you are absolutely right. There was no wind on the ground. I guess I'll go with the old adage, I'd rather be lucky than good!

Lyrics51,
That is a remarkable shot, I have never seen that kind of effect with the clouds moving. Very impressive!

I concur... that you captured the tree absolutely motionless, with the blurred clouds (with color, yet!), even some stars peeking out from behind the clouds... adds up to a great shot!

Gimli and Smartin, thanks for the comments. I have to admit I didn't even notice the stars when I took the picture. I think that some of them in the lower, leftcorner might be hot pixels in the camera, although they don't normally show up on other photos. Perhaps the long exposure made them obvious. Again, thanks for commenting.
