The Moon

The Moon | Seed Plant Water Grow

I've always been drawn in by the beauty of our moon.  The pull of each phase while transitioning month to month rings through so many symbolic gestures.  It's navigational gifts are always present and provide guidance on multiple levels.  So naturally I wanted to try for a really great shot.  The above photo was taken with a Nikon D7000 as it was approaching full position.  My lens combination was a Nikon 300mm f/4 AF-S IF-ED coupled with a Nikon TC-14E II 1.4x Teleconverter.  This overall set up brought me closer than ever before and my hope in the future is to get even closer.  My ideal lens is quite pricey so for the time being it'll have to be relegated to the clipboard project list.  I know shooting the moon isn't anything new but personally walking it brought so much creative joy.  It provided a boost of inspiration towards other endeavors.  So my advice to anyone dealing with this type of quandary…just GO FOR IT!!  Everyone has their own unique vision and you never know what personal insights walking forward will bring till you just take that first step:)
