Well not too far a ramble tonight as it was experiment night, first with the tripod and then with the lens focussed
firmly on the rising moon - or at least focussed on where it was anticipated it would rise.
Stumbling down the gravel road in the semi dark, the moon was nowhere to be seen. The night
before, on our way home, it was soon winking on the horizon in all its glowing glory after the fiery sun had retreated. Like funicular spheres, one down, one up.
So where was it tonight?
It was a game of patience, diary dear, standing in the dark with collar pulled tightly around - and almost groping in the dark for the camera and tripod set up in just the best vantage spot.
Ho hum, Mr Moon, where are you...
Scouring the darkening hilly horizon, it was a guessing game for a time as from which
bit of the hill the first aspect of the moon would emerge...
