Trust

All I have seen has taught me
to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

What a great quote, Bethany!! And the pictures is great, did you take it???

Kori said...

Bethany!!! I love reading your blogs! Greatttt quote and beautiful picture!!! See you soon! :)

Bethany said...

Yes -- the picture is one of mine. I had been reading a photography book about how to photograph the moon, and then God sent me a perfect night to do so! Isn't it special when He does things like that?

Beautiful moon shining over Seward ;). That's an incredible picture, Beth. You have a lot of talent there, girl! Thanks for the great quote too!

Bethany,
That moon pic is awesome!!!!
Have you ever tried taking pitures of lightning? :o/

Bethany said...

No -- I have never tried taking pictures of lightning. Living in town, houses and trees are in my way! Maybe someday... :D

Hey Beyhany, I have a question for you.What was your exposure for that picture?And do you have any idea where your lens was set at?I've taken a few pictures of the moon and I've had a little trouble with my focus?!I've been waiting for another really good moon to try it again.
Love Amanda

I can't believe you were able to photagraph the MOON! And so perfectly, too!!!

I've tried many times, but have never succeeded.=(
For some reason on my digital camera, the moon appears to move in a circular motion, and therefore any picture I take looks like a blur...
Does that make any sense?!=/

I love that picture, and the quote... I heard that quote years ago, and thought it was very well-put!

Hey Amanda! Your not supposed to ask questions like that! :D (Settings, apertures, and the like...) I have no idea what the technical information is on that shot. I was very suprised that I got it though, because I didn't use a tripod at all -- just a fast shutter speed (which I'm not sure of either.) Sorry! I wish I could help you more. I think it was more of a chance thing than myself being an excellent photographer (though don't I wish?! :D )

And yes, your question makes sense, Rachel! My guess would be that your (automatic?) camera chooses a slower shutter speed for low lighting pictures like one of the moon will be. And since it is hard for humans to hold the camera still for even 1/30 of a second, longer exposures will blur. If you try a tripod, (or even set your camera somewhere where it will not move during the exposure) I'm sure you'd have better results!
