I headed out tonight in the hopes of capturing the super flower full moon (when did moon names get so long?). I had checked its expected location and decided to shoot from the recently renovated Fort Sewall only I did not pay attention to the time and arrive almost an hour early for the 7:40pm rise. I ended up crossing the causeway to shoot back towards Abbot Hall but the clouds filled the sky too quickly for a nice shot there.
Once back at the Fort, I set up only to realize I had missed my mark and quickly moved further up near the flag pole. I started off shooting a composition including Marblehead Light but then decided to take advantage of the zoom lens and focused in on Marblehead Rock. I’m glad I did as I otherwise would have missed the site of a paddleboarder coming into the harbor. He seemed to be out specifically for this moonrise paddle (at least I convinced myself of that) and made the scene much more interesting and dynamic. I thought the silhouette made that full moon really seem far bigger than life in the final image.
I spent this weekend completely redoing my website and would love it if you could test it out. It should be MUCH easier to find a favorite image and ordering prints should be far more obvious than what I had prior. Please visit my site and click on the Shop or All Photos in the top menu then play around. Thanks!
