Last Light  with the Moon, Monument  Valley MT

Uploaded: August 12, 2007


aperture = f/10, ISO, 400, shutter = 1/160th, -1 exposure comp., lens = EFS 18-55 @ 50mm, location = Monument Valley,time of day = just after sunset. Bogen 3221, Remote shutter release. I took several shots trying to get some detail in the moon. -1 ex.comp with ISO 400 gave me the best image.
