050404 - Rising Moon Sequence

Another sequence, but this time of the moon. Using a slightly longer lens, each shot was taken in 7 minute intervals. You can see the color of the moon change as it rises higher into the sky. The moon's path, unlike the sun, is a straight line. The first image was of the lighthouse at twilight while there was just enough light, then I waited for the moon to rise to complete the sequence.

The image was shot with a Nikon F4 and 135mm f/2.8 lens on Ektachrome Plus 100; 12 exposures on the same frame of film.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
●    8x10 print / 11x14 matte
●  11x14 print / 16x20 matte
●  16x20 print / 20x24 matte
