We were out doing some evening work in the yard – attempting to dodge the Florida summer heat – and I happened to look east as the moon was rising above the trees. The rather low, fluffy cumulus clouds, dissipating after a day of thunderstorms, were streaming past the moon as the drifted out to sea, the moons glow creating a colorful rainbow of colors as the clouds crossed the moon. To the Western sky, Jupiter and Venus were glowing brightly as well – so, no surprise here – I went in, grabbed our new Canon 5DS, slapped on our 100-400 and our 1.4 extender, and started shooting. I began with some freehand shots at higher ISOs with surprisingly decent results (you could clearly see the phase of the Venus), but later resorted to a tripod to capture some low ISO, high aperture images. All in all, I was very impressed with the 5DS and here are three of my favorite images!
