Venus – Jupiter Conjunction March 2012

Picture was taken at Rancho Bernardo in San Diego California on March 13, 2012.  The Venus – Jupiter conjunction.  It was very random as I just saw this from the parking lot, but good thing I have my gears with me and just couldn’t stop myself from shooting these beautiful heavenly bodies.

Almost a full moon

As I was walking out of the parking lot after work around 11:10PM on February 5, 2012, I saw this nice bright moon on a semi clear sky.  It even has a ring around it (caused by light refraction from ice crystals in the atmosphere).  It took me 4 shots before I was able to get a good setting to picture the moon.  Final settings:  Lens @250mm, ISO @100, Shutter @1/125, and Aperture: @ f/11.
