On this day in 1922, In Egypt, Howard Carter peered into the tomb of King Tutankhamen.

St. Pauls Newtownforbes Longford.jpg

St. Paul's Church, (c.1825) Newtownforbes, Co. Longford, full moon before dawn on a cold and very frosty morning. I simply stuck the lens through a gap in the railing and held it there for 20 seconds (wedged against the rails). Under normal circumstances, I'd have done some work with the moon but this 365 prohibits that so take it as it is. A multiple-exposure would have been really suitable for that sky but I would not have been able to hand-hold the camera that long.

A single frame, ISO 100. 20 seconds @ f/8 Post-processing, White Balance adjustment only.
