    Yeah, I'm in New Mexico. Please explain these "clouds". Do they interfere with photography? Are they an outdoor thing?
    I'll shoot a few shots of Portra 160 at the moon and see if I can find one.

    Here in Charlotte, we have the inevitable "isolated evening thunderstorms" forecast - no telling if I'll be able to see the moonrise or not. But I'll try!

    So, clouds are hot chocolate.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Hardy har, it gets cold as hell here in Santa Fe in the winter, usually hovering around freezing for daytime highs. But you must understand, it's still always sunny, until we wake up with a foot of snow and then drive, in the sun again, up to the ski basin 30 minutes out of town and shred up some powder. It's a weird place...

    They are those little white streaks you see in the sky on days when everyone is complaining about the humidity.

    Santa Fe is always windy too, and cold with wind make it really nasty there.

    I'm in Beijing. What is this "moon" thing you keep talking about?

    In PA we occasionally see a large flaming ball in the daytime sky. Is this the nighttime version? How does one go about shooting this moon thing, if we can see such a thing?

    Ended up last night having unusual access to a fantastic vantage point from the penthouse of the Standard Hotel-East Village in Cooper Square with a wraparound veranda providing views facing North, East, and West of New York City shrouded in fog and clouds. A few interesting shots of that, yes, but the moon was nowhere to be seen. Interesting company, at least, and an open bar, so it wasn't a total loss.
