131018_103 - Founders Memorial Park, Old Saybrook

About 30 minutes after the full moon rises, the details on the moon are too bright to capture and still be able to capture the details of the surroundings. So the moon is resolved to an almost white sphere. However, it is at this time, if there is water in the foreground, that you can capture the moonline, or lunar glitter line, in the water. The higher your position, the longer the glitter line. Here, because it was low tide, the glitter line extended onto the wet mud of the estuary.

The image was captured with a Nikon D800, 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6, ISO 800, Gitzo tripod.

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