Taken near Huntley, Illinois last week during the rise of the full moon. I had gone out that evening intending to capture the sunset, which promised to be spectacular following a day of stormy skies and billowing clouds. The sunset did not deliver as expected as the skies quieted ahead of the disappearance of the sun. One final glance around as I decided to leave revealed that I had missed the memo about the time of the moonrise that evening. I quickly reset and got into position to make a couple of moon shots.
So instead of colorful turbulence, I got deep tranquility. Not a bad trade-off.
The other moonrise pic will be posted tomorrow.
