The skies have been relatively clear at moonrise for the last couple of nights so I've been going to the cemetery, all of three blocks away, because it has the clearest view of the east in town. I've been late for the moonrise each night which has been just as well because of clouds on the horizon each night. I'm hoping for a very clear horizon at moonrise sometime this week as I'm determined to get a really great moonrise shot--Bob Johnson has me inspired (and seething with jealousy).
I can't hope to come close to what he captures, but that's okay. I just want to see what I can do.
Keep in mind that I don't have a telephoto lens--just the 12x zoom that comes with my camera.
Above: I couldn't resist trying to shoot the moon through one of the letters in the Masonic Cemetery's iron gate. It's not amazing or anything, but it was fun trying to do it. I only got the one clear shot, I couldn't get the camera to focus on the moon through a letter again after this.
