When looking through my best photos, luck often plays a big role. I had just bought a new 18-150mm lens (28-240mm full-frame equivalent). I was photographing a local event, when my wife pointed me to a hot-air balloon approaching the moon. I was at first sceptical if my gear was sufficient to capture this, but the result is nice.
