Moon Over Boston

Full Moon Over Boston
photo by J. Gerencher

The full moon is rising over Boston, as seen from the campus of Tufts University in Medford, MA.  The sun is setting directly behind the photographer, so there is still enough light to partially illuminate the city of Boston, which is in the distance beyond the lower houses of Medford.  The scene was photographed through a 135 mm lens at f/2.8 on ASA 100 slide film using a 2X tel-extender, which creates an effective focal length of 270 mm and an effective focal ratio of f/5.6.
