Waiting for the Harvest Moon

The setting sun paints an orange glow to the sky and hills beyond the bay as we wait for the rising harvest moon.

Thank you to everyone who joined me on the Camera West Photo Walk yesterday evening to photograph the rising full moon over Rat Rock Island. We had a good group of shooters and the conditions were perfect – no wind or fog!

Right on schedule, the harvest moon rose over Rat Rock Island and the hills above Pinole.

  1. Great outing! Not being that polished. I learned a lot. The moment was beautiful with the interaction of colors and the quiet focus of the other photographers around me. While admiring the colors surrounding the rising moon, I realized that I was no longer holding my breath due to a stressful day. Breathing is nice.

    Thanks Michael, it was worth every minute!
