Moon light is a good light!

After getting the inspiration by a friend from POTH, utilizing the opportunity of a full moon week end night, got a few pictures using moon light only to lite up the scene.

Thanks. Very true.
I really had a great time.
The only problem is the time each picture needs. Night turns to morning in no time and good to have enough extra battery.

Is that a hint of Aurora action I can see in the first shot on the horizon? Good shots by the way!

Thanks,
Good eyes. To be honest, I have no clue either. Might be pixelation related artifact but not aurora. Site is very much away from pole.
Though I was shooting with a Nikon 50mm manual lens, seems the depth of view was playing a major role and infinity was not were I thought it should be. After all its at F / 1.2 lens.

Nicely done...
Out of curiosity, what were some of the exposure times on these?

EXIF data shows 13 to 25 sec depending on photo.

Love the Joshua tree pictures with the stars shining above!!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks to all.

Yes I don't remove the EXIF so they are self explanatory. BTW, I didn't shoot manual that I normally do in situation like this. Only switch to AV as I was using a manual Nikon lens on Canon body so letting camera decide on the needed amount of light but checked every image to decide on next, adjusting the (-)ve bracketing that was in -2 to -1 for most images.
I am truly amazed by the sensor power of newer DSLRs to capture the right color, once given them enough time. Of course as title states, Moon light is in my experience a very nice flattening light with no need to adjust White balance.

This is from last night. Not a full moon night and some contribution from tungsten.
