There’s a Full Moon Rising

Another addition of full moon pics. These are from the full moon and blue moon rises over Lake Michigan last month. (Again, how lucky was I to have that view?)

I’m still learning how to use all the different functions on my camera, so these photos were edited after the fact.

This was early in the evening on 7/30/15. The water quality was really amazing.

This is a little later in the evening, but before the moon was bright enough to leave the reflections in my last post.

The next three shots are from the blue moon on 7/31. I skipped dinner to make it to the lake in time to catch the entire moonrise, which ended up being something of a mistake. Shaky hands don’t make for awesome photographs. It was worth it though.

The colors were really amazing that night.

I was still completely entranced by the moment here. I think most everyone was by this point.

Between these two photos is when I started to shake badly enough that I gave up and went in search of food. Once I was off the pier and partway down the beach I turned around for one more look…

No regrets
