The rabbit in the moon

Posted by
Hoshisato (Dippach, Luxembourg) on 26 October 2008 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

The maria in the moon reminded the Japanese of a rabbit living on the moon where it makes mochi. Lots of photos of the moon at Aminus3.com recently and since this beautiful moon was hanging over my garden wall, I felt I couldn't stay behind.

Not as sharp as I would have liked but the optical resolution of the Sigma 28-300mm - 1:3.5-6.3 lens I used is not outstanding in any case (it was cheap though) and I took this handheld :-).

PENTAX K20D 1/350 second F/6.7 ISO 200 300 mm

For the inside information about these shots, follow me on my blog at monochrome.me.uk or on Instagram.

You are shooting digital now, but deep down, maybe even unbeknown to you, you want to try film and find out why so many happy people are still using it. If so, once you are ready to take the next step to being a happy photographer, visit my page dedicated to film photography here.
