Blue Moon




 

 

 
 
A blue moon is defined when 2 full moons occur in 1 month. This usually happens once every 2 1/2 years




 
 
This is a shot of the Blue Moon July 2015 at the California State Capitol. I had to really work to get this shot. At times I was in the middle of the street but luckily the traffic was not very bad. The moon moves so fast making it a challenge to shoot, that one of the things I love about shooting low light photography. I like how the color of the moon changes as it moves through the atmosphere. I used my Canon 40D with 100-400 lens. Camera settings F9, 1/3S 350mm A blue moon is defined when 2 full moons occur in 1 month. This usually happens once every 2 1/2 years.

Highway 101 & Highway 280 interchange




















This is Highway 101 & Highway 280 interchange. To get this shot we had to go
through a cyclone fence and stand on a hillside over looking the freeway. See more

Old House in Petersberg, Oregon





This old house looked spooky and lonely out in the middle of
nowhere.

Panther Creek Falls




This is a shot of Panther Creek Falls which is actually in Washington. The
falls were a little rugged getting to. Had to climb down a rope and than scale down a wall.
It was well worth the climb. Be sure to take something to cover your camera with
because the mist will get on your lens. See more photos from my Portland Oregon & Columbia Gorge
