Random night photography…

Got inspired this evening by seeing the moon out in a mostly clear sky, which then got some lower cloud cover to make things interesting.  So we took a random walk with an old Sigma 28-300mm “travelling” lens stuck on the front of the D40.

Moon backlighting clouds - what amazed me so much was how little of the real dynamic range of the scene could actually be captured by the camera. Either the moon blows out or the clouds disappear. Anyone come across a way of dealing with this, without resorting to HDR methods?
