This is the Kewaunee, Wisconsin pier and lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.
A pessimist might look at this moon and say it was half-empty. An optimist, on the other hand, would see it as half-full. It was, indeed a full moon, partially obscured by clouds.
If you read the previous post, you know how difficult getting the right full moon shot can be. This was taken the night before the Algoma Night Lights shot. This one wasn’t as bad, but it wasn’t the ideal shoot either. Again, I started out at the wrong spot – too far south – to include the moon and the lighthouse in the same shot. by the time I got in a suitable location, the moon started to slip behind some clouds. This was as much of the moon as I got. Each consecutive shot shows less and less until it’s gone.
The best shot of this moon was actually captured through the trees in my back yard after I returned home. Check out my previous post: Mystic Moon
