Headed out to shoot the (almost) full moon rising tonight. I thought that the cloud in the distance was too thick to get the moon coming out of the horizon. I was surprised to see the moon right on time. For shots like this a really cold night generally gives less distortion. But I can never resist the opportunity to shoot the rising moon when it is clear. Was nice to have the White Turtle III with me to use as a base of operations.
Another clear night and more of the moon is showing. LOVE seeing the details. I really have to get myself a telescope with a camera mount to do some real close up pictures.

If you are looking for a good place to photograph the moon, I recommend Writing On Stone.
A waxing moon is even more fun to shoot than a full moon. This time of year my taking of nature and wildlife pictures takes a back seat to printing and studio projects. I have been hoping for some northern lights to shoot but no go. I did have a chance to get out the other night to see the meteor shower but never had a camera with me. When I got back home the moon was so clear and bright that I had to take a few quick pictures.

A cold fall day exploring the river bottom turned out to be a nice warm fall day. Funny how a day that looks like it will be bad can turn around.
The Lethbridge river valley is a place that holds a lot of history and a lot of wildlife. There is a lot of wildlife that I never thought that I would see down there and one of them is wild turkey. Went down on Sunday and came across 7 turkeys enjoying the sun and a meal. Not sure how wild they are but they were down there and were not too worried about people walking by or taking their picture.
