Went up to the Klamath NWR's yesterday. Forecast showed sunny, so of course when I got there it was 22 degrees and blanketed in icy fog
Luckily the hotel I stay at in Klamath Falls has a great bar and restaraunt, so it was still a fun overnighter.

Here's one of my favorite moon shots:

I had to process out a lot of haze, but the colors are accurate.

DC, nicely done. I've read conflicting views about the apparent size of the moon when it's lower in the sky than when it's higher. I know the actual distance doesn't change, but I've always felt the curvature of the earth's atmosphere acts as a magnifying glass to create the illusion of a larger moon near the horizon. During the eclipse moonrise last week, which I can clearly watch from my living room, the moon seemed quite large as it rose above the horizon. When I went out at the beginning of the eclipse, the moon was nearly overhead and seemed just a small dot in the sky. My perception is not that far off that I'd believe my eyes are just playing tricks on me. Your photo is a good example. One of these days I'll set the camera to one focal length and take a shot of the moon coming up over the horizon and again later when it's much higher in the sky and then compare pixels.

My first Western Burrowing Owl. Since I was using a 70-200mm lens, I had to do some stalking, which isn't easy when your subject can do a 180! Taken at Seal Point park in Foster City.

I think you'll find it takes more pixels near the horizon. I think it's caused by the atmosphere acting as a magnifying glass and bending the light. It's also much harder to get a clear, detailed image, because of the extra atmosphere that the light travels through.

Ed, fantastic focus on that eagle shot. Isn't the a9 amazing? It's like cheating, is the way I feel when I use mine.

Terry, DxO has a "Clearview" setting that's pretty amazing at removing smog. You might try it on a free trial.

Great composition. Dave

At base-ISO, the a7rIII has stunning dynamic range. Look at the dark areas of the clouds to see details that many cameras can't show.

This one is after sunset, with the a9 at ISO 12,800. The Sony bodies have changed my whole outlook regarding using high ISOs:

Here's one when I did a hike up Buntzen Lake in British Columbia. This is overlooking the Indian Arms, and Vancouver is in the back.

Yeah it sure is, and looks to get a big boost with the new firmware down the road. I am eagerly awaiting its release.

Awesome eagle shot, Ed. How big of a crop is that?
