Full Moon At Sunset

Pin It

Monday, December 4, 2006

The full moon rose at 4:50 pm with the sun setting soon thereafter.

I'm told this doesn't happen very often; that the full moon rises before the sun sets.

These photos were taken from the lighthouse overlook platform on Trinidad Head and are shown in sequential order.

I was able to stand in one spot, just off the platform, and turn southwest to shoot the sun then look northeast to shoot the moon. It was sooo cool.

More photos of Trinidad Head and surroundings may be viewed here.

Some more beautiful photos Christine, it seems you take your camera most places, like me.

Hi Anne. I've missed so many good shots because of leaving my camera at home, that now I try to keep it with me at all times.
I think I took 30 photos of the sunset and moonrise on Monday. These were the best shots. The moon is very hard to photograph with a hand held, digital camera. It (the moon) keeps moving!

Hi Christine, This is so beautiful. Good idea to take paired shots in each direction!

Your photos make me miss life behind the "Redwood curtain"!
