This month’s attempt to photograph a rising full moon was thwarted by Friday’s hazy eastern horizon and Saturday’s thickening clouds. Still, Friday provided this view of the Deerfield river just after sunset:
It’s not a true “moonrise” shot, the cold-hearted orb being too far from the horizon to use Gizmo and actually get much lunar detail, but still, the sight had a certain ambiance which prompted me to pull over and go through the motions. This shot is courtesy of Ollie, my 24-105mm L-series tele lens, which is my most compositionally flexible tool to date.
Time will tell if the crisper evenings of Autumn grace me with better luck.
