The Sturgeon Moon rises in August and I hoped to catch it on this night from a vantage point at Fountain Park.  As I waited, I tried to find a composition that would include the lighthouse and Little Harbor.  I was pleased to find this angle and even more so when a pair of kayakers paddled into the foreground.  The moon ended up rising a bit early so that it’s color lacked the vibrant yellow that came with the moonrise the next night.  I was happy with the way this sunset view turned out.
