Lantern Festival – Full Moon

Lantern Festival - Full Moon

We celebrated the Lantern Festival last night with dear friends.  Unfortunately there were too many clouds to seen the full moon so this shot from the last full moon will have to do.  The Lantern Festival occurs on the first full moon after Chinese New Year and is a time for celebration, family and friends Lantern Festival.

The moon is especially hard to shoot as it is so bright!  Your camera wants to overexpose so you usually have to set the camera to manual.  This shot was taken at 200mm on a tripod with a 10 second delay to minimize camera shake.
