Jamaica Pond at Night

Driving along the back of the Jamaica Pond last night around 10PM, I saw a beautiful full moon.

I seemed like I could get a good shot of it AND the pond if I crossed the dividing line of the road and pulled over to the curb, facing the oncoming traffic.

So I did it.

The next thing to figure out was how to get a timed exposure with my Canon S400.

I took a while, but I figured it out and steadied the camera to the frame of the car, held in the shutter, stayed as still as I could, and nothing happend!

Ah, you've got to release the shutter, and then the camera makes the exposure.

I think it came out pretty good.
