Obligatory Moon Shot, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

Last night was extremely clear in Northern Utah, so I took advantage of the clear sky and nearly full moon to capture this photograph. The exposure for a shot like this can be misleading. If you follow the recommendation of your camera’s light meter your capture will typically be extremely over exposed.

This capture was made with a 300mm lens and an exposure of 1/800 a second at f/5.6. If the clear sky holds through Monday evening, I will likely step outside to capture the true full moon.
