Moonlit Starry Cottage

Moonlit Starry Cottage

I took this shot the other night while we had a beautiful 3/4 moon (Waxing gibbous moon] & a clear night with no clouds. The abandoned cottage was something I always wanted to photograph, so I took this shot as the cottage was lit solely by the moon.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Canon)
Camera Lens:
Focal Length: 16 mm
Exposure: 25 sec
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 1000

  • Amazing shot. It's so atmospheric. The moon must have been quite bright, judging by the stars the exposure wasn't very long. It's a fantastic image.

  • Very nice image. I like the way the stars are still visible in the brighter bart of the sky. Trails would have taken from it I think. You got the exposure spot on.
