Photography Photography - Canon 5D Mark II

Dream On!

Moonrise over Safari West

Every once in a while I snap a photo that seems like it’s perfectly intended to be used as a desktop image.

This photo was taken at Safari West last fall while we were out riding through the wilds in our Dodge Power Wagon. Our driver pointed out the moon rising and the cloud pattern and I snapped off a quick shot. I used my Canon 5D Mark II with the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L lens and the Canon 1.4x teleconverter. The effective focal length for the shot was 280mm.

I’ve had this image as my desktop image ever since I took it. What’s amazing is that if I stare at the fullsize desktop image for 5-10 seconds, I swear those clouds are moving! My eyes and brain playing tricks on me!
