Happened to have my camera in hand when I crossed these tracks, so I took the opportunity that presented itself with no time to think much about camera settings:

Took this last night, and after cropping down to just this one bird (out of 3 in the full frame), I really like the result:

I'm rather proud of this shot -- I managed to get a sharp, well exposed photo of this gull in flight. I'll call it 50% skill and 50% luck. :)

I snapped this photo of the first full moon of 2018 (plus one day) last night. Went out on my balcony with camera and tripod, and after the 4th shot looked reasonably well focused and exposed, I hurried back inside before I got any colder. :)

By the way, that is not a black-and-white photo: that was shot in color, and I did no color correction at all in Lightroom -- just some exposure/contrast tweaks.

Nice. What focal length, ISO, f-stop, and exposure time?

300mm (crop sensor) at f/7.1, 1/400 sec., ISO 100

PS: I generally post these from Flickr, so if you click on my images, it'll take you there, and the exif info is on the page -- that's how I just checked it. :)
