The moon that brightened a cloudless sky Tuesday night had to fight clouds for attention Wednesday evening but the orb that played peek-a-boo with the cloud cover gave me a chance to try out the new Canon EOS-1D Mark III and shoot the moon as it appeared along Virginia Rte. 8 near the Montgomery County line.

Shot hand-held at three-tenths of a second at F:2.8 with a Canon 24-70 zoom set at 70mm and shot at 1600 ISO with some dodging and burning in Photoshop.
