The Brightest Moon of the Year!
I took this photo tonight of the moon which will be the brightest one for this year 2010. Here's a news clip about it.
And I'm pleased that we had a clear sky here in Canary Islands so I could get this photo:
As I don't yet have a telephoto lens for my SLR, I used my Olympus SP-560 UZ point and shoot set to Manual(M), f/4.5, shutter 1/160, ISO 50, using a tripod and the self-timer.
If you are in darkness and have a clear sky tonight, go and have a look at this wonderful moon. You can see Mars just to the left.
It's a perfect photo op.
