During this year I am taking up a challenge to post a photo a day on this blog. I am a beginner photographer hoping to learn much about my camera and how to take photos.

Meet me by Moonlight
Long ago and far away this was the name of a musical my Dad produced in the amateur theatre days in Durban. The title came to mind when I saw the moon tonight.
I need to read up some more about ISO and the like but I'm quite please about how this one came out. I love the way some of the leaves on the bush sparkle with the reflected light and the roof of the house creates a great silhouette. You can even see two stars in the picture. Not too shabby after all. Anyone with tips please post in comments.
Shortly after I took this shot I went out again and took some shots with the ISO set at 200. By that time some wispy clouds had blown across the moon and the reflection was too much. I preferred this shot. I'm afraid I can't remember the settings for this shot because I played around so much that I forget what I used for each one.
