The Moons Winter Halo

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to have witnessed a Winter Halo around a full moon. It was pretty cold outside as I was lying down on the lawn, but it was worth it! I took some photos of that night. The Winter Halo was so close, I had to place the camera on the ground in order to get any good shots.

For those of you who don’t know what a Winter Halo (commonly known as a Moon Ring) is, it’s basically a reflection from ice crystals in the atmosphere.

    I’ve seen this happen many times in South Africa,I never could get the perfect shot though. Any special settings or do you just have the knack for it? 😀

    • I mainly switched up the exposure time for these, between 5-10 seconds, and I kept it at f/2.7. It was a while back, so I don’t remember any other specific settings.
