I shot this photograph of almost full moon around 15 minutes back from my ground floor flat with the help of my Canon EOS 1000D and EF-S 55-250IS lens.
Even though with a crop camera I am getting a field of view of 400mm, but still I had to almost full crop this image to get the moon to look this big. I guess for the next moon shot, I either need to get a 400mm lens (640mm field of view) or get on top of a tall building or maybe even a mountain :D.
