A blue moon in the Khutzeymateen

The Khutzeymateen's Blue Moon - 2013 © Christopher Martin

Canon 5DIII camera with a Canon 500mm lens: 1/1000th of a second at f/4 on ISO 2500

On the last night in the Khutzeymateen there was a short break in the clouds right as the full moon was clearing the tree tops across the bay.  This was the fourth moon of the season earning the distinction of being a blue moon.  It seemed an appropriate way to end a spectacular visit to this wonderful inlet.

    • Hi Svetlana,

      No problem – I just added the settings underneath the image. For the record, I used a Canon 5DIII camera with a Canon 500mm lens and the settings were 1/1000th of a second at f/4 on ISO 2500.

    • That’s one of images I did not come home with – a coastal wolf. They are in the valley, but elusive. I hope when I return next year they choose to let me see them.
