There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
I bless the rains down in Africa.
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.

I only had to overcome my weaker self to get out of the bed at midnight to be punctually on top of Pockkogel 2807m (Tyrol, Austria).
Together with my wife and photo-buddy Nikolaus Haselwanter we had a lot of fun, though it was quite stormy, cold and we had to take care not to tip over the edge on that small peak.
If you are a kind person you check it out on black! 😉

Taken with the canon 600d and a Tamron 70-300mm at 300mm (480mm Full Frame equivalent). I put the camera on a tripod, set the lens to 300mm and aimed at the Moon. I played around with a bunch of ISO and shutter speed combinations but ended up liking following settings: 2.0s F5.6 ISO 3200 the best. I also made sure I was in mirror lockup mode, had a 10s timer and i stood back a few feet every time i pressed the shutter. I would have gone wider than 5.6 but unfortunately that’s the widest this lens will go, in addition I’ve cropped the photo a bit after taking it. P.S you really have to set the focus manually and get it right by trial and error but luckily i managed to get a perfectly sharp shot of the supermoon!
