Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-Wk-42


Odd Ball

Week 42


Saturday night…setting moon
moonset_0021Probably not quite odd enough for the OddBall challenge…but different.  Just happened to notice the setting moon as I toddle off to the cot last night.

I took this photo without using a tripod,

although I did lean against the door frame for support.

  • Shutter Speed: 1/125
  • Aperture: f/6.3
  • Focal Length: 500mm (equivalent to 750mm on 35mm camera – Nikon D90,  cropped sensor)
  • ISO: 160

This photo reminds me of a story about two locals in my home town.

A new moon would come on its back, similar to this shot.

One would say the moon was full of water and a

wet month was to be expected.

The other would say the moon was holding water in

and a dry month was to be expected.

Whatever the outcome, one of them would be

nodding and winking at his mate with an

I told you so‘ expression on his face

sometime during the month!
