Moon Over Red Mountain Pass
Contest Number: 138 Contest Theme: Moonscape Lens: Sigma 10-20 Camera: K-3 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F6.7

I took this on Labor day weekend Sept 10, 2017. 145 second exposure. ISO400. I kept the shutter open for the length of time it took for a car to drive across the frame. it took several tries leaving the ISO the same and adjusting the F Stop for the correct exposure. The moon was about 72% illuminated. I started out taking pictures from inside the building on the right side. Every time I opened the shutter, I heard light footsteps behind me. After about 15 minutes, I left the building rather quickly. The lesson is, don't go to a ghost town at night alone?
