We went exploring again, and found a nice view of Four Peaks to use as the backdrop for the rising Rose Moon this past Friday the 13th.
Pretty happy with how it turned out, even if it does look more like a sunrise than a moonrise! The moon had a lovely orange-red glow to it that added this awesome effect.
Tried a couple close-ups, but the timing had to be perfect and and I did not quite make it as I would like to see a sharper focus. I may have to try renting a really good telephoto to see if that will help get this process a bit quicker for the moonrise shots. Also would allow a better size and definition of the moon. Definitely worth another experiment!
Thoughts on this photo-shoot: The spot we found was right off a dirt road made for a lot of dust in front of my later photos, try to find a more isolated area next time. It did however lead to some interesting options for long exposures! The picture below was taken as a car drove by in front of us. The lights you see are the headlights. :)
