Re: Interference Fringes?

After the recent exchanges on this subject, I consoled myself with the thought, that my digital image collection has some 71,000 images, and the Industrial building image was the first that I had found unusable due to Moiré.

Then at Seaham yesterday, I did some shots of the waves breaking over the harbour wall:

On close examination, this fence has blue and yellow Moiré:

This shoot was a trial run, as I hope to go there again when the waves are much higher.

There was some sun shining when the image was shot, would the Moiré be less if the sky was overcast?

When I eventually get to shoot the big waves, I plan to use a viewpoint further along the coast, more square on to the lighthouse, that should eliminate that fence from the image. Good job I had this trial shoot.

I would appreciate any further comments please.
