The Dark Side of the Moon

Image

Occasionally I’ll attempt something new with my photography and every so often I’ll be pleasantly surprised by the results. Last night was one of those situations.

The Bloke bought me an amazing camera as an early birthday present. I’m not great with brands or numbers of these sorts of things, and as I don’t have the camera to hand all I can tell you is that it is a Canon Powershot S something-or-other (I can hear all you photography enthusiasts face-palming yourselves in the background).

Last night was quite clear and the moon was really bright, so I decided to test out the digital zoom capabilities. After a few minutes of getting nothing but a light blob in the middle of the screen I stood and waited to try and allow it to focus a little better, and this was the result. I didn’t use a tripod either! Yes, I’ve done a small amount of editing on Lightroom, but I’m really pleased with the end product!
