I love both of these but that first one is WOW!
 
My sister and I have a small beach cottage on a bay on eastern Long Island. There's a 10x10 covered deck on the front lawn that looks out at the bay, which is six miles across. I like to sit out there in the late afternoon, have a cocktail, and look for photo ops. The 500 f/4 II is on a Wimberly gimbal and Induro tripod.

Here's a nice sport fishing cruiser that went by. R5, 1/4000, f/8, ISO 1250, at 1000mm (had the 2x III TC on)

Great Moon shot. That looks like from two days ago, although we were getting snow here where I am. I’ve taken some shots with my new Nikon P1000, but while I get good definition along the twilight zone, it’s been blown out once it gets on around to the sunny side. Do you have a HDI setting, or shoot under, then post process?
Oh and I LOOOOVE that Flicker pic!
