I shot this image at 280mm using my 200mm lens with 1.4x extender and did some minor post editing to lighten the outer edges a little.
A full moon shot that I've always wanted to try to get. At 280mm with 200mm prime lens and 1.4x extender, camera mounted on tripod, 2 second countdown and using my remote shutter release I think I managed to get a shot that I'm quite happy with. I did crop the original image although I wish I had a lens with a longer focal length.
With focal length of 73mm on my 24-105mm lens, I attempted a 4 second exposure with ISO 100. Of course the moon is moving so I haven't achieved the perfect round shape for this one - I really liked the clouds in this too. I converted the image to B&W using Lightroom.
Torres del Paine National Park, 181,000 hectares (447,260 acres), Chilean Patagonia - this is just one of the stunning views that can be seen in the park.
Neptunes Bellows (62°50'S, 62°33'W) - a channel on the SE side of Deception Island in the South Shetland Archipelago forming the entrance to Port Foster, the caldera of an active volcano.
It was so named because of strong gusts of wind that sometimes blow across the mouth of the channel. Sailing through here is exciting - it's a gap of only 400m wide and our ship captain navigated his way through by hugging the northern side (avoiding a submerged rock that lies just below the surface of the water in the middle of the bellows).
