After an absolutely wonderful couple of weeks up at our northern Minnesota cabin, it’s good to be home again. I will be writing about my adventures in near-future posts, but I feel the strong urge to let you know I’m still around by bringing you something while I’m juggling the other priorities of resuming the routine of life at home and preparation for the harsher season (I can’t bring myself to name it out loud—or even in print—yet). I had a go at shooting the blood moon, with considerably less-rewarding results than I’d hoped for (more about that soon, too), but a couple of days afterward, as I was fetching firewood after dark, I was struck by the amazingly clear sky prior to moonrise and immediately scurried in to fetch the camera to see what I could do.
I made the shot I like best with my main 18-140mm workhorse lens at 18mm, 30 seconds, and f/5.6 at a sensitivity of 5000. I developed it further after capture by increasing the brightness and saturation.
