Landscape Group visit - Avebury by Moonlight Monday 15 August 2016   

Moonlight SWSix hardy Landscape Group members gathered at Avebury after dark to try photographing the stones by moonlight. 

Photographing Avebury RHThe gibbous moon illuminated the whole landscape, whilst not being too bright to swamp all the stars. 

We tried exposures of 20 to 30 seconds at apertures from F/2 to F/4 and ISO settings of 800 to 1600, which gave correct exposures by moonlight. 

The constellation of Ursa Major (the Plough) was well-positioned low in the northern sky, enabling some pleasing compositions of ancient stones under the stars. RH
