Moonrise Over Seattle

D7K_0878 flat

This was taken at 1730 on 9 December 2011 which was the Full Moon the night before a total lunar eclipse the next morning. I didn’t stay up (or get up) for the eclipse as heavy clouds were forecast (and appeared). This was taken from the Alki Point boat launch and was shot at the magic time when the setting sun (behind me) was still high enough to reflect off the buildings but not bright enough to wash out the moon.

Nikon D7000, 18-200 mm lens. Exposed at 1.3 sec, f/22, ISO100, 80 mm. Although the RAW image was imported in LR 3, all the processing was done in CS 5 using NIK Software filters.
