Hello friends sorry I haven’t post much lately, I have been busy with some painting commissions, fullfilling some orders and organizing my new Etsy Shop. Last week I went to visit the beautiful Ocean it was an great day! Maybe some of you that follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart already had the opportunity to see these and more of my latest photos. I love the ocean in Winter the colors, the dramatic sky is a wonderful combination. When I went there I took some nice photos there were a beautiful light check my Instagram for more. These days here in California is unusually raining a lot, which is very good for the earth everything around here is now way greener and beautiful! Usually the hills where I go hiking are dry and the vegetation camouflage with the dirt and rocks at this moment it is so green like rarely I have seen, so I went to take some photos there too I will post them here next time. For today enjoy this beautiful ocean’s sunset! And you can also see me in action trying to capture the moment! ❤
Until next time I wish you a great week I better go back to paint now! 😉 ❤
November Supermoon 2nd night photos with the Full Moon!
Yesterday night I had a second attempt to photograph the beautiful “Supermoon” yesterday was also the day of the “Full Moon”. Once again here in California the sky was beautiful and clear I am so glad. I have been lucky this month. Last October I remember that when we had full moon the sky was full of clouds, covering the moon and not a chance to take any photos. Yesterday and the night before photos turned out pretty well. I am really happy! There is a pretty good sharpness and definition on these photos, you can see the details and pretty much all the lunar craters. This moon shot was taken outside home around 6pm last night. I am amazed because I didn’t used a tripod! For whom interested I used my camera Nikon D3300 and a Telephoto zoom lens 70-300mm I don’t remember the settings because I did change several while shooting. The first photo in this post is barely edited, I only cropped to have a close up I see that there is a purple reflection on the top I don’t know what caused that maybe because I was holding the camera. Overall I am happy with it!
I also attempted with some help to get an artistic photo with me holding the moon in my hand! ❤ I guess turned out great! I just had to edit this one a little to make sure that my profile is visible, because the photo was taken without flash in complete darkness, only with the moonlight that was very bright. This is an iPhone 6 photo and was taken yesterday on a nighttime hiking walk, I went to walk right after I took the moon shots.
I have been always fascinated by the moon, since I was a child. I always loved to just look up at the sky and admire her beauty surrounded by stars.
This above is the first photo without cropping just resized, and here down below is the moon in my previous post took it on November 13 night!
I know that in several parts of the world this full moon wasn’t visible, cause clouds and weather. I am happy that I was able to witness and share this moment with you through my photography!
