I’ve been in Carinthia one day earlier today, because I had to bring the car to a car repair shop.

The appointment was for 8:00, thus I started out early and also made some images. The Image of the Day with its perfect alignment of moon and the mountain Mittagskogel was one of them.

I used ISO 640 and by accident I kept ISO at that for the whole day. That’s the kind of stupidity that you end up with when a camera does not have reasonably intelligent auto ISO 🙂

Oh, by the way, you may remember that I wished Nikon would implement auto ISO in a way that takes focal length into account. Good news: wish granted. Bad news: so far only on the D4 😀

The Song of the Day is “Fingernail Moon” from Annie Lennox’ 2007 album “Songs Of Mass Destruction”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Beautiful photos. And yes I agree with you about auto ISO in cameras today. Not as intelligent as it could be and that’s quite surprising really.

  2. The fingernail moon really nails it. Simple, effective.

  3. A beautiful shot, Andreas. I’m not a fan of auto ISO, so it doesn’t bother me. 😀

  4. Instead of auto ISO, I’d rather the camera ring a bell to remind me to check my ISO – among other settings, of course, like white balance, lol.

    Love that sliver of moon above the mountain.
