Moonrise over the Neuse at New Bern
Sometimes we have to improvise when we don't have with us the ideal equipment for a photo op. Traveling to New Bern, NC, I packed the most compact high quality camera and lens combo that I could. The Canon 40mm "pancake" lens hardly projects forward of a DSLR body (5D Mk II in this case), and is very high optical quality, but the focal length is fixed and there is no image stabilizer. Not having a tripod, I simply balanced the camera on a post for this 4 second exposure of the newly risen moon over the mouth of the Neuse River.
