New Moon Over Bombay Hook National Wildlife Preserve
I took a quick and last minute trip down to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Preserve last weekend with a couple of my good friends. Not, that I have anyone in my life that I would identify as a bad friend. Anyway. The full moon was due up on Monday night. If you witness the moon rise on the day before the full moon, it appears to be full….and the added bonus (photographically speaking) is that it will rise just as the sun is setting. So, if you ‘shoot the moon’ the landscape will be nicely lit with the warm tones of the setting sun. EASY!
This panoramic is a 7-image vertical pano shot at 52mm….with an 8th shot of the moon taken with a 400mm lens and combined in post processing. This wasn’t the image I had in mind…but we try our best to adapt.
