Donkin Reserve lit up

When I went to visit my sister in hospital the other night to see my new niece, I drove by the Donkin Reserve and had to stop to take this pic. The moon was beautiful in the sky and the floodlights on the lighthouse made it a pretty sight. I have posted a day pic of the Donkin Reserve before here: http://fireflyafrica.blogspot.com/2008/07/pe-monuments-1.html

I found that the pic wasn't exactly what I wanted it to be. I also tried to take one of the moon alone to get a nice moon pic and could not. I relised that I still have tons to learn about the camera and photography. Baby steps.

  1. Nice shot ! the light house looks great against the night sky, ah moon shots, really, really tricky with various lens, f-stop and ISO combinations possible, there is no one magic formula, a tripod is a must to avoid movement and most importantly patience, and we all learn something new every time we pick up our camera thats the fun bit. As I say "shoot lots get lucky sometimes" LOL
