The experiment using the snow setting on the moon failed. I tried that last night with the same camera that I used to take the “darkness” RV photo.
The moon was still out this morning when we got up — I think that might mean we got up to early — so once again I was taking pics before I had my coffee. This was taken with the SX10… it’s what I hoped for, but still I never expected I get this much detail. I plan to try in a few more nights/days when the moon has waned a bit.
