September Photo Walk : Full Moon Over Rat Rock Island

Moonrise over Rat Rock Island

For our September photo walk, Michael is leading us to a small beach near San Rafael in Marin County where we will photograph the full moon as it rises over an island with a very unique name : Rat Rock island.

On Thursday evening, September 19th, the moon will rise just as the sun is setting giving us a rare opportunity to have detail in both the landscape and the moon. This only happens one day a month and on this particular day, we will be lined up perfectly to get an image similar to the photo above.

There are a few tricks however to get clarity in a moonrise photo so Michael will be on hand to help guide you to come up with photos you will be proud of.
