Grand Marais Moonrise 001
I usually don’t take photos of the moon the day after it is full because it comes up 40 minutes later and it gets pretty dark by then. Since the evening was clear with very little wind, I took a chance and headed into Grand Marais to photograph the moon behind the Grand Marais lighthouse.
It was another beautiful moonrise with just enough clouds to give the moon a deep reddish hue. A young couple was watching the moonrise from their hammocks that they hung from the Grand Marais light. As I was taking photos of the moon, a sailboat drifted around the corner and into the harbor. I waited until it passed directly in front of the moon to capture this image. In photography, being in the right place at the right time can make a big difference.
