Last night, the full flower moon rose under picture perfect conditions with clear skies and a warm evening. I had scouted out locations from which to capture the moonrise and had decided on Fountain Park for a different vantage point from the usual spots at Fort Sewall or Front Street.

I arrived a bit early and enjoyed standing at the park overlooking Little Harbor, Doaks Lane and Fort Sewall. At 8:12pm, the sunset cannons fired and I managed to capture two of them in a short video. Shortly after that I spotted the moon but had to wait another ten minutes for it to rise above the haze.

Hope you enjoy this view of a Fountain park moonrise.
