Moonrise over Tucson
I went up to A Mountain to watch a later moonrise over downtown Tucson tonight. The clouds made for interesting skies. In this first image, you can see the bright moon through the clouds and to its left is the planet Jupiter. Downtown is at the left edge of the image. This image was taken with my 50mm f/1.8 lens and an exposure of 6 seconds at f/11, ISO 1600.
This second image was taken with my 24mm f/1.8 lens and an exposure of 6 seconds at f/11, ISO 1600.
Zooming in on the downtown area shows the tallest buildings in Tucson. This image was taken with my 75-300mm telephoto lens at 130mm focal length with an exposure of 3 seconds at f/11, ISO 1600.
