Today’s post, like yesterday’s, focuses on the importance of looking all around when taking pictures. It is also a good reminder for me as I don’t always do that.
I had hiked up to this high location on a hill and was taking pictures of the beautiful sunset and clouds. Once the sun dipped below the Channel Islands, something made me turn around and there was the moon rising up from behind another hill. I quickly changed lenses and started shooting the moon. Unfortunately the moon was rising faster from behind the hill and I missed what I considered the best shots of the moon.
Here is the third from the last shot of the sunset:
