Sunrise/Moonset…

I have a friend who seems to always find the perfect spot to view an unusual situation for a photo op. Sometimes it requires being on a beach 50 miles from home at 2 AM, which I did once and it really wasn’t too bad. So I really had no excuse not to try to find the spot for the sunrise and moonset that were going to occur at roughly the same time on Thursday morning. Doesn’t that sound intriguing? Would they be in the same shot somehow? I won’t know until I see her pictures, because I didn’t head out quite as early as I would have had to. But I did decide that I might be able to get a good view of the moonset and sunrise from Bayport. It’s almost as far of a drive for me, but a much easier traffic-wise and I know the area. So off I went and this is what I found, which isn’t what I hoped for, but it was fine. The reverse is true for this evening, a moonrise and sunset happening at nearly the same time. And if I want to join my friends I could find the spot in the daylight. We’ll see how brave/energetic I feel later today…

I hurried to take a picture when I saw the nice reflection of the moon in the water.
And I was happy to get this shot also.
But then I had to play with the Lensball but honestly couldn’t make heads or tails out of what I was seeing as I was shooting. And yes, the moon shows in this picture, just not the way I might have expected or wished.
I think I bought the Lensball because I could also buy this little stand that you can attach to your tripod. And yes, it’s an essential element for someone shooting alone.
As the sky got lighter the reflections disappeared.
But the colors of the sky got prettier.
And then it just faded away.
But wait, there was a sunrise happening across the parking lot!
Through the camera lens.
And from the iPhone.
