For this week’s throwback I’m sharing the last photo from a series I took last winter during the lunar eclipse. I must say this long telephoto really takes some getting used to, particularly for landscapes. One aspect of this difficulty shows up nicely in this photo. Even though the rocky edge of the coastline was a few hundred meters away, and the lens was at f/9, the rocks still show up well out of focus when I focused at infinity. Clearly, one needs to use really small apertures to get enough depth of field for something like this. In my case that would not work, as even at this aperture, and at a relatively high ISO, the shutter speed was at the limit of what I could work with.
