Very Unusual Eastside Photos 3/21-22/08

Postby mountaineer » Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:10 pm

I was in the Bishop area last weekend. As luck would have it, there was a full moon and clear skies. As most of you know, clear skies are a bore for daytime photos. However, I saw an opportunity and took it. Therefore, I took far more nighttime photos than daytime on this trip. I was driving around until 1:00AM on Saturday morning and until 2:00AM on Sunday morning.

Here is the page of photos from that trip, followed by a few examples.

Nice! :cool:

I took film and digital. These are the digital ones. I can't figure out a way to get more than a 30 second exposure with my digital camera, so, unfortunately I had to set it at 400ISO and put up with the subsequent noise. They were 400ISO, 30 seconds, f5.6.

Nice job Jody. There's nothing like a full moon in the Eastern Sierra. I never took advantage of it the way you just did.
