Full Moon Friday

Canon 7D with Sigma APO 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG MACRO lens.
Exposure: 1/4 at f/5.6 (ISO 100) Focal length: 300mm
Post production: Lightroom 4 (from RAW)

The fast moving clouds gives it some oohhmmff! Don’t you think?

Lupita Tweet

Then I spot this double page spread in the Evening Standard (the very same paper from the tweet above) dated 17th Jan 2014.


I rest my case as I continue working hard.
