    Reminds me of my first spontaneous moon picture:


    I was kind of surprised how fast the moon moved, so I didn't have much time until I could no longer catch it from the balcony. Also just 200mm on full frame is not long enough. Next time I want to rent a D7100 along with a 600mm lens in order to get some decent shots. Just not sure when and where >_<

    I am very much stranded right now, so I didn't take many new pictures, unfortunately. Probably this one is worth showing:

    Nikon D61o, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8, Iso 110, f/11, 1/15s

    Shame, my timing was super bad with those shadows. Will try to hike there very early in the morning or at sundown.

    Edit: Looking at the picture now, I think I selected the wrong one. This one doesn't seem to be very sharp and the sky is overexposed. Well, never mind, then, I better take some new pics ^^

    Alone in the Dark by Jonathan Horne, on Flickr

    Canon 600D + Canon 18-55mm zoom, 1/100, f/4, ISO 100

    I went for a bit of a creepy, not-quite-sure-if-you're-alone look. This was shot outside a public school at night. It was a moonless night with the sound of the wind rushing through the valley, yet the air was still in the immediate vicinity. It was an unusually quiet night, without even the usual sound of distant traffic or frogs. I hope the picture portrays just how creepy it felt to be there, I was constantly looking over my shoulder even though I was sure I was alone.

    Furthermore, opposite the school is open bush leading up the hillside to Peer's Cave, an ancient burial ground. With Fish Hoek being the witchcraft capital of South Africa, the chants of practitioners can be heard emanating from the cave and piercing the air every full moon between around 23:00 and 02:00. Knowing that I was a few hundred meters away from this location adds to the spooky feeling.

    ^ I notice they have changed the page layout @ flickr yet AGAIN, no camera model/lens or setting are shown now, I'm not averse to change but it just gets worse each time they fiddle with the layout....................I'm getting close to being done using them

    Anyone else feel the same ???

    Oh and it takes so long to load that to me its practically unusable at times and it has nothing to do with speed @ my end now I'm on fibre

    Now all I have to do is work out how to insert my pics from 500px

    It does, but you have to scroll down now, rather than it being beside the photo. I preferred it the old way too, but have gotten used to it this way. 500px is kind-of a pain, at least it was when I last tried to use them. It's blocked at work, so I don't use it regardless.

    Something black & white for today.

    Huh? I still see camera and lens settings. I know I had to explicitly enable that for this latest view, but they should be there. I keep wanting to be done with them, but nothing else comes close for the price :/

    Still no camera/lens/settings detail shown for me, maybe I'm special...............

    But as you say, the price is right, but I'm getting to the point where I am looking for an alternative, even if it costs a few pennies more

    Oh and now there are no comments

    REALLY hated that there were tents blocking the bottom of these buildings in the beautiful light, but I captured what I could.

    Sadly no, I don't have the cash for it at the moment. I might jump on the xpro2 or xe3 when either of those hit (I like the rangefinder body more). I gotta sell off my canon gear too, so there's that.
    The 10-24mm that took that pic is amazing btw.
