Full moon on the rise

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.

The Moon

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.

CASA Lethbridge

A quick shoot of CASA Lethbridge, Alberta building last night. PERFECT light for the look I wanted to get!

The snow and the blue sky give the picture a cold look while the light from inside warms the building up.
