Moonrise Thru The Clouds

Earlier I photographed this Moon rising in the early evening sky. I liked the wispy cloud going diagonally across the rising moon giving an abstract element to the image. Featured Image taken with a Canon 1D MkIV, 400mm f/4 DO lens with a 1.4X Teleconverter, handheld @ f/8, 1/640 sec, ISO400

A couple more moon images from previous moon shoots.

Moonrise in the Afternoon

Moonrise in late afternoon. While I was looking for photo subjects in the yard, I thought the moon looked interesting with the thin cloud cover. Not great, but something for the blog.

Firey Clouds With Moon

I was taking images of wispy cloud formations as the sun was going down. Got a lot of variations including multiple panoramas, some verticals and some horizontals. I liked the warm colors of the clouds and all the variations of clouds across the sky, getting quite a few images of different clouds and compositions. When I was done I noticed the moon was visible now, so I shot another series with the moon, as shown above.

Moonrise at Brigantine NWR

Winter gives me a chance to go over old shots I have not gotten to. Here is one taken at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge, Maryland.
