Single frame… Moon

Fujifilm X-T2, Centon 500mm f/8 Mirror Lens, 1/500s, f8, ISO 1600

I spent a fun hour last night photographing the moon (and giving a phone tutorial to Rachel on the same thing…)

I’d found a cheap 500mm mirror lens in the cupboard and with the aid of a T2 mount and a Nikon-Fuji adapter managed to mount it on my X-T2 giving me the equivalent of a 750mm lens.

This lens seems to be able to focus beyond infinity though and I had trouble getting a correctly focussed image… this one is the best out of the 59 shots I took!

Single frame… Poppies

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

“In Flanders Fields” – Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD – November 30, 1872 – January 28, 1918.
