120406_014 - Moonrise, Old Saybrook

Every full moon we try to capture the moon near the horizon. Sometimes the weather in Connecticut cooperates, sometimes not. This image was captured at Founders Memorial Park in Old Saybrook. It has a great view of the Eastern horizon with little obstructions. Other than the small cloud bank on the horizon, the sky was perfectly clear. The clouds through the moon add some character to an ordinary orange globe.

The image was captured with a Nikon D800, Sigma 300-800/5.6, ISO 100, Gitzo tripod.

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