Break out the long lens

FRISCO — After decades of shooting with SLRs and DSLRs, I’ve drastically changed my photography habits. I still carry a couple of cameras and a few lenses if I want to shoot wildlife, or catch a closeup of the moon, but often these days, I wander out with only my iPhone. But a quick look back through the archives shows the value of keeping that long lens around, for wildlife, of course, and even to create a nice bokeh in a wildflower scene.

A rare vertical landscape portrait, composed to capture the moon in the sky and its reflection in the wetlands pond near our house in Frisco, Colorado.
FRISCO — It not be a super moon this month, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing – plus, getting outside for a few minutes as the sun goes down in a blaze of tangerine-colored sky is good for your sanity. No matter who wins an election or a football game, this old world keeps on turning … Continue reading

Hunter’s moon rising over Summit County, Colorado.
FRISCO — OK, so I didn’t manage to get a good shot of the eclipsed moon this morning. It was mostly obscured by clouds, but I did watch the lunar orb emerge from the Earth’s rusty shadow from the deck. That means I’m looking forward to seeing all the pics of eclipse streaming across the interwebs this morning. Even without the eclipse, there have been a few dramatic moments in Summit skies the past few days, including the first real wave cloud formation, a sure sign that upper level winds are shifting toward fall and winter conditions, and the last few remnant patches of autumn leaves.

A kind of weird low-light exposure of the moon rising above Dillon Reservoir.
FRISCO — Another full moon came and went in Summit County, the last during the spring season, and at the same time, fields and forests are busting out what promises to be a fine display of seasonal wildflowers. It’s always a little disconcerting to see bright blooms in places where snow berms lingered just a few weeks ago, but it’s a good reminder that it’s time to start planning those outdoor summer adventures before the season slips away … Continue reading

Moonrise over the Continental Divide in Summit County, Colorado.
FRISCO — Over the years, I’ve managed to get a handful of decent moonrise shots, and I’ve learned that, as often as not, there’s some luck involved. It’s easy enough to figure out when and where the moon will come up, and by now I know that the night just before the full moon is actually the best time, as far as the balance between light and dark. But the best shots, at least without using a filter or without having to do to much post-processing, are when just the right clouds are about to help slightly filter the bright moonlight, balancing it with the surrounding darker sky. I spent about an hour each of the last two evenings trying to get some good shots and this is what I came up with. I’m not totally happy with any of the images, but I sure enjoyed the chase!
