We had a full moon last night and I photographed it. Well I tried anyway. I went to the Desert Botanical Gardens and took a class on photographing the moon. We didn't get a chance to photograph any of the night blooming flowers. We did a little painting with light. The following photographs were done on a long exposure and then I took a flashlight and 'painted' the cactus with the light as the shutter was open. I so need some work but I think I'm going to have fun try this new technique out.
We had a few clouds last night but I love the way it looked as it lit up the clouds around. These we're also taken on a long exposure so the picture is still pretty dark but I like the effect.
And one last shot of the moon. I wish it hadn't been so hot that is my only complaint! It was still over 100 degrees at 9PM last night. I am so looking forward to the cooler weather. Well the weekend is coming. I hope I have time for some more enamel and maybe some more pictures of the desert!
