April’s Full Moon

Last nights full moon, as captured from the middle of Swindon on my 550D and 250MM lens.


Strangely enough I actually much prefer the half moon I captured earlier in the month,  where you can only see 50% of the moon. I think the half moon is a better picture because the way the light causes large shadows upon the moons surface, highlighting the craters and ridges.

Last nights moon, a full moon, was in comparison quite featureless.

Also shooting from the middle of Swindon, I wonder if the Moons slight colouring is due to our wonderful network of orange street lights we have.
