Sunset & Moonrise...

7 posts in this topic

Cloudy skies in this region have been hampering much of my efforts of late when it pertains to my pursuit of landscapes especially sunsets. mad

However a few days ago I did manage to sneak in a few of both the sunset and during the same time and location the full moon rising.

I have shot this location on a number of past occasions, this is mainly due to the old windmill at this location. I love shooting old windmills in any location!

It's now August and the meadows and road side ditches are filled with mature "tall grass". IMO tall grass is another great subject to incorporate into photographs. This is especially so if you use a little imagination.

In this first photo the sun is about to set. I set my 500mm on the tripod admid the middle of a huge patch of tall grass. There was a slight breeze blowing which in the end did not allow me to capture the tall grass in razor sharp form which IMO is not a big deal.

A mere twenty minutes or so after the sunset image I turned my attention

to capturing the moon as it rose up through the very same tall grass. I merely had to swing my camera 180 degree's on the tripod to capture this image.

Here's the old windmill that always manages to lure to this area from time to time.

Very nicely done! I feel the lack of sharpness is an asset. It enhances the mood. You can almost feel the breeze.

I admire your desire to get out and get the perfect moonrise and sunrise. These are stunning. The moonrise with grasses is very appropriate, as Dotch told us this month was a "full grain moon" among other names.
