These pictures were taken on the morning of January 2, 2018 as the sun was rising and the full moon was setting in the western sky.
“When one starts thinking of the full moon as a common sight that will come again to one’s eyes ad-infinitum, the value of life is diminished and life goes by uncherished.” ~Roman Payne

It was a beautiful sight to see!
I like this Rebecca! It’s what I search for when the moon is “close” to being full.I say close because if one was to shoot the moon on the night of being full it would be complete darkness.So a few days before is prime! Than I try to find one of my eagles? The moon is point “A”,the eagle is point “B”.Draw a line from the moon through the eagle & where it hits the water(in my case) is point “C”. Use your largest focal length & there you have it!
Scouting the night before is advise so you know exactly where it’s going to come up & what you have to work with.This is where ones creativity comes in!
Great eye Rebecca!
Thanks, Wayne! I went out that morning and there it sat all big and pretty in the western sky. I liked the way the rising sun gave the sky a nice glow. I’m looking forward to seeing the next full moon at the end of January. It is suppose to be a full moon with a total lunar eclipse. Should be fun to see if the sky is clear that night.
ahh,I didn’t pay attention……..you were getting the sunrise/moonset.So you’d be looking westward.The only object I try to shoot in those moments is the lighthouse.Trying to line them up is always a challenge!
Being at the right place at the right time cannot be overly stated!
Your heart must of skipped a beat when you realized what was happening!
I watch the moon religiously for opportunities!
Yes, it was one of those “stop and savor the moment” that I wasn’t expecting.
