Description

My first idea was to photograph a moonrise on the horizon. I went to a very good point of view but had to go back empty because of the clouds. So, as usual, from my garden, I was waiting for the opportunity to capture the Moon-Saturn conjunction.

I had to set the Tamron to 70mm to get both targets in the field of the sensor. I managed to get a snapshot for the moon and clouds and another for Saturn, so that this beautiful planet is not represented as a single star.

Moon and clouds : 70mm - ISO 800 - F/5,6 - 1/4s

Saturn : through the clouds - 1200mm - ISO 800 - F/13 - 1/20s and reduction in order to respect the proportions
