Headed out to shoot the (almost) full moon rising tonight. Thought that the cloud in the distance was too thick but was surprised to see the moon rise out of the horizon right on time. For shots like this a cold night gives less distortion but I could not resist the opportunity to shoot the rising moon with it being so clear. Was nice to have the White Turtle III with me to use as a base of operations.
Another clear night and more of the moon is showing. LOVE seeing the details. I really have to get myself a telescope with a camera mount to do some real close up pictures.

This time of year my taking of nature and wildlife pictures takes a back seat to printing and studio projects. I have been hoping for some northern lights to shoot but no go. I did have a chance to get out the other night to see the meteor shower but never had a camera with me. When I got back home the moon was so clear and bright that I had to take a few quick pictures.

A cold fall day exploring the river bottom turned out to be a nice warm fall day. Funny how a day that looks like it will be bad can turn around.
