Atlanta Supermoon

Last night I headed over to the North Fulton Golf Course in Chastain Park to capture some pictures of the supermoon.  This vantage point gave me a great look at the moon along with a view of the Buckhead skyline.

A look up Main Street in Rosemary Beach Florida.  The left side of the street is lined with restaurants, bars and shops including the Cowgirl Kitchen which has great Bloody Mary’s and Pina Colada’s.

Rosemary Beach Florida Town Hall

Rosemary Beach Town Hall

Last night I went for a bike ride to capture some night shots of Rosemary Beach.  This is the Town Hall and US Post Office on the coastal side of 30A.  The stars were amazing and show up well in this picture.  The image was shot with a Nikon D800 and 14-24mm f/2.8, 100 ISO, 5 frames between 1.3 seconds and 20 seconds.  It was processed using Photomatix and Lightroom.

Pictures of the Moon and Stars from Sea Island Georgia

This past Sunday night we were in Sea Island and the sky was so much brighter than what we typically see in Atlanta.  I went out that night with my tripod and got some shots of the moon and stars.  Here are two of my favorites:

ISO 100 - 300mm - f/5.6 - 1/200 sec
ISO 100 – 300mm – f/5.6 – 1/200 sec
Moon and Stars
ISO 400 – 28mm – f3.5 – 8 sec
