I didn’t have anything from previous years for this day so I went out and took an image of the moon tonight. The image was taken with a D3x and 400 mm AF-S f/2.8 D II with a AF-S TC20EIII teleconverter. ISO 100, 800 mm, 1/200 sec, f/8. Processed using Capture NX2, Photoshop CS5, Focus Magic, converted for web and sRGB using Photoshop CS5. The white balance in the camera was 3030 °K. This probably could be made a bit warmer.

My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
