Palm Trees in Ponte Vedra Beach Florida

Last night the kids were playing with sparklers, the stars were out and the moon was slim, so it made for some good pictures of the palm tree in our yard and the stars behind it. Each image is available on my website www.CarsonMatthewsPhotography.com. The change in ISO from 3200 to 800 made a big impact on what is visible in each picture.

Pictures of the Moon and Stars from Sea Island Georgia

This past Sunday night we were in Sea Island and the sky was so much brighter than what we typically see in Atlanta.  I went out that night with my tripod and got some shots of the moon and stars.  Here are two of my favorites:

ISO 100 - 300mm - f/5.6 - 1/200 sec
ISO 100 – 300mm – f/5.6 – 1/200 sec
Moon and Stars
ISO 400 – 28mm – f3.5 – 8 sec

Enjoy, Carson Matthews
