That was at a nearby campground. I smeared a couple of human elements in the background, but I couldn't make it all go away without a serious Photoshop intervention.

I'm processing a couple of moon shots right now. I had an airliner fly in front of the moon. The moon was low and it was a bit hazy, but I'll work on it to see if I can salvage it.

Thanks to Sandy, this month's full moon was a no go. We got some very strong winds and thick clouds. It will most likely last all week.

As long as all we get is winds, I can handle the storm and the missed photo op. But the last one (Irene) made some serious damages to my house and to the yard.

But for this one, I think/hope i'm ready.

Here's hoping you guys get spared the brunt of it up there.

Some high, thin clouds moved in this afternoon and evening and spoiled the full moon shots, but it did make for an eerie pre-Halloween pic.

I actually could have got a great shot tonight. Every now and then, you get a clear shot at the moon. But winds are about 95km/h right now; which is about 60mph. So clouds are moving so fast it pretty much impossible to snap.

I was still preparing my tripod to get outside when I saw a neighbour's patio chair fly over his yard to another neighbour's yard. That made me change my mind and I decided to stay inside. I dont mind a hardcore photoshoot, but it could have been a lot worse then getting shot (paintball).

I prefer to wait for the next full moon then to get whacked by flying debris. I wouldnt be surprised if the power go out at anytime. If anything hits those cables; either debris or a tree; Houston we'll have a problem. Generator's ready for the essentials just in case tho. And I got food/water/batteries/gas for two weeks.

Luckily, we only get the winds so far. No rain yet (knock on wood)

I was thinking that, too. Plenty of full moons to shoot. You even know ahead of time when they'll show up.

So I take it the building has another section you were in? Or were you hanging out in the breeze on that narrow ledge?

Okay, maybe I should clone out that branch right above the head. I was so close that the 70-200mm was all that was needed.

I would do that if I had a BASE jumping rig handy

Actually it is an outside area or balcony big enough for a few people to catch some air, have a smoke, etc. I walked to the very edge of it to get that perspective, but it wasn't a narrow ledge or anything
