Another Sunset and some reflected Light

Post by Derek Klepp » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:17 am

Hi all managed a few more Sunsets but as Saturn occulted the moon I thought I,d have a go at shooting it handheld with image stabilization on .Shot at 1200mm(600mm plus 2x ext) with a Canon 1DXMKII.Hope you enjoy.
Cheers Derek

Thanks.Alexandra I was lucky with the smoke on the Sunsets but the live view was spectacular.Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the view.
