One Night Before a Full Moon

I don't know why I shot this at such a low ISO but here it is.  Tomorrow is a full moon but tonight will be the only night to get anything as tomorrow it is suppose to rain....90% chance.....lots of rain they say.  Sump pump started last night and is running every 22  seconds.

Anyway, I shot this at 100 for 30 secs at f~5.0 with the lens at 270mm.  Hence the star trails and clouds out of focus, I mean moving, I always shoot in focus.  Santa won't visit me tomorrow after that big lie.  No matter, this is pretty much right out of the camera.  You'll have to blow it up to see how many of the little stars I caught.

Landing Gear This Year....Wheels!

No Santa....we aren't going to put the runners on the sleigh this year.  Get over it.  December, mid-sixties, rain and fog.  This morning just the fog.

There was a bright shininess to the trees as the sun came up and started to burn off the fog.  It looked as if we had had a little ice over night but it was just from the rain.  Just keep the wheels on Santa.
