Giving Light Upon The Earth

Last night i thought i’d try (for the first time) and take some photos of the moon. I knew this was not going to be easy for me, but i had a go! So i mounted my Canon SX40 HS onto my tripod and opened my bedroom window. I thought i’d use my β€œBridge” camera as it has a massive 35X Zoom (this is equivalent to a focal length of 24-840mm). This also made it near impossible to keep still and press the shutter at the same time, as i can’t remember (i have to remember so many settings & dial turns, as i can’t see the buttons etc) where the self timer button is! Β 

At least for my first attempt i actually found the moon! lol. Now it’s another challenge for me to try and get some good shots of the moon at different positions etc. Hope you enjoy my first images of the moon! πŸ˜€

Genesis 1:16-18 King James Version

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.Β

  2. Did you know dear Brother that the moon is called the Holy Spirit according to the magi way back when God taught “astronomy” to His people? Mars is called the Adam, Jupiter – the Righteous, Saturn – the Lord of the Sabbath. The planets are the wandering stars. I love looking at the unfolding story in the heavens! Great pics! Enjoy your new camera and thanks for sharing your joy with us! Shalom and grace to you!

  7. Hi Steve,

    Wow – what great photographs! You can really see the details of the moon. And this was your first attempt? You are so talented my brother.


    • Hi Nancy!
      Thanks so much for the loving comment! πŸ™‚
      Yeah i thought i would challenge myself and try and capture a shot of the moon. I thought it wasn’t going to happen when i set up my Nikon with a 80-400mm lens onto my tripod and just couldn’t get it to focus on the moon. I’d heard that you need to turn auto focus off, but as i can’t see details auto focus has to stay on. So i thought my dream was over and this wasn’t going to happen!

      Then i remembered my Canon bridge camera with massive zoom! So i set that one up, and it focused straight away and had more than twice the zoom length!! This made me happy! πŸ™‚ Also i’ve found where the self timer is, so no more warbling the tripod! whilst pressing the shutter button! I think i’ll be taking quite a few shots of the moon from now on! πŸ˜€
      As always Nancy, thanks for spending time to view my posts and comment. It’s such an encouragement to me to have a supportive sister on my journey! God bless you! πŸ™‚

  8. FANTASTIC!! Steve, these are great photos. That is some zoom you have there!! But it is your talent and expertise that make them so great!

    • Thanks Ellen!! I think my camera does all of the hard work! lol. I just press a few buttons! πŸ™‚ At least i’ve finally figured out where the self timer is, so i can get rid of more camera shake! πŸ™‚
      I thank God for creating such an object of beauty, and for giving me the opportunity to be able to capture an image of it!
      Ellen thanks again for always being here to put a smile on my face with your encouraging comments and loving friendship. God bless you sister. πŸ™‚
