Moon Rise – Time Lapse
We’ve just had our first full moon for the month of August (two this year, hence the phrase: “once in a Blue Moon). The heat and humidity had me up late last night, and I decided to sit on my patio and watch the moon make its appearance for the night.
I set up my tripod so I could take long exposures, but I rather forgot about the fact that I had some of my camera settings set to black and white mode.
I live in town, so my view of the night sky is mostly obscured, which makes the “glimpses of light” that much more exciting!
In between the new construction next door, a tree and a rope swing, the moon is coming up, and the clouds are moving out.
This next exposure (3o seconds) shows how rapidly the clouds were moving out toward the ocean. I rather liked the end effect in the this shot. (personal taste, I know)
And finally, the moon is almost “free” of the trees, and one last wispy cloud blows by.
