Point Dume Beach Malibu

I decided that I wanted to make a picture of the full moon (which actually rises tomorrow). However, I wanted to practice on the nearly full moon tonight, so I headed up to Point Dume Beach in Malibu. That’s a really cool beach with all kinds of tidal pools and the interesting rock formations that are part and parcel of Malibu.

I’m not very happy with the moon pictures that I manged to make though. It was really smoggy/hazy. Tomorrow, I’m going to the desert, and I’m hoping I won’t have to contend with smog there. The images also weren’t as clear and sharp as I would have liked. That might be the photographer, but I’m tempted to blame my lens.

The longest lens that I have is a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens. It’s a pretty cheap lens, and I guess you get what you pay for. This was the first time I’ve gone shooting with it, and I’m not very happy with the results I got with it. I’m thinking about renting a nicer lens for tomorrow.

Anyway, I have Pictures of Point Dume Beach including a few moon images.
