Floyd County moonscapes

Full moon: The first of two full moons in October 2019.

Another beautiful autumn moon over Floyd County.

Been shooting moon photos for more than 55 years and with newer equipment and long lenses, getting sharper and more detailed images is easier.

This month’s full moon was captured with a 400 mm Canon lens with a 2X Tele-Extender on a EOS-1DS digital body from the top of our driveway at home at ISO 1200, 1/500 shutter speed at f5.6.

Floyd County has given me great opportunities for interesting moon photos over the past 15 years, including the one below that was shot in early morning twilight over U.S. 221 just South of Willis on April 5, 2004.

Two others include a snowy scene from our front porch several years ago and one just over the trees on Sandy Flats Road in 2017.
