That got me to thinkin'. I've never done a GEOtography post about the moon. The thing is, for photographers, it's a difficult shot. And once you get all the camera setting down pat, the kind of photographs you can take are a bit limited.
However, the photos you can take come out quite stunning. One does quickly discover however that its just as much about what else is in the photo as it is the moon. In fact that's what gives variety of these things and sets your shot apart from those everyone else has already taken.
Just look at these few that I've found over on Flickr. I've tried to select (from the thousands) those: related to the geography, the kind represented by where we like to ride and examples of each of the several types of shots you can take.
Hope this gives you a few extra ideas of what you can do with those digital cameras you carry with you when you go out for a ride.
