Looking for Moonrise

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 29 April 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I went out to Folsom Lake hoping to capture a rising full moon. I knew there probably would be clouds, but I was just hoping. I captured this image looking east towards where the moon would have appeared with the clouds. I have been wanting to capture a full moon rising all year but each time it has been obscured by clouds. I'll try again next month.

Canon EOS 5D 1/5 second F/11.0 ISO 100 18 mm
