Wolf Moon over Griffith
This was a planned alignment image of the full moon setting over /behind the fabled Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA. The image was taken from a hillside behind the Trader Joe's in Silverlake, 2738 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027--the manager of the store was not happy that I scampered up the "grassy knoll" for the shot...I took a series of images in an impromptu time lapse of the entire moon setting behind the Observatory which can be seen on my IG @photographybywam

Focal length: 800mm (400mm x 2X teleconverter)
Shutter: 1/250th sec (thankfully no wind blowing on my camera/tripod)
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 400
Date: Saturday morning Jan 11 2020
Time of day: Approx 7:23a as registered on my camera but my time synch may a couple of mins off.
