Moonrise at The Lake

Everyone loves a full moon.  When it begins to rise just over the horizon, it can look almost otherworldly and huge as it hovers over our landscapes.  We were lucky to have nearly a full moon when out west, but I almost equally love the tiny sliver of a crescent moon as the monthly cycle begins again.  It’s always a treat when the moon has been missing for a few days then out of nowhere you surprise yourself and catch the tiny slice somewhere in the sky.  I happened to notice the moon yesterday as it was rising and headed towards some interesting stuff to try and get a few good shots at Rockland Lake in New York.

These were also taken with the 100mm Hasselblad lens, and the shot below was interesting to me as the foreground elements are sharp as a tack while the background falls off into a nice soft texture.
