130721_038 - Moonrise, Old Saybrook

With some full moons, especially along the coast, there is a cloud bank that prevents capturing the moon as it breaks the horizon. In this case the moon rose earlier than normal and by the time the sun had set, the moon was in a clear portion of the sky with just a tinge of sunset colors in the eastern sky. This was taken from Founders Memorial Park in Old Saybrook.

The image was captured with a Nikon D800, 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6, ISO 400, 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
