Lunar montage 2012. I started this shoot with phases of the moon in April 2012. It has taken 6 months awaiting the right weather conditions to achieve. It culminates with the August end blue moon, so called because it was the second full moon in one calendar month - a rare event and hence the name. Blue moons occur every 2-3 yrs. All lunar phases were captured with the Olympus E5 & 90-250mm lens with the addition of a x2 TC. This yields a max focal length of 500mm (35mm equivalent of 1000mm due to the four thirds sensor x2).
