April’s full moon is known as the Full Pink Moon. I decided to go up on Mount Pollux, a very short and undemanding 1 minute walk from the parking spot, for a fairly clear view according to The Photographer’s Ephemeris. If you are not familiar with the software, it is a great resource for information regarding the sun’s and moon’s rising and setting times as well as location and stage of fullness. Add a compass and you should know just where the moon will show up on the horizon and just when as well. It worked. 🙂
I like this view rather than the images I made with the entire moon hanging in the sky. There are wispy clouds catching the light from the sun’s twilight aiding in the “Pink” part of Full Pink Moon and looking especially nice with the deep blue of Blue Hour for a backdrop.
A lot of folks have become interested in night photography and are putting out some superb images but I haven’t done much evening or night photography. I think I will try more if I can only stay awake after 9 p.m.
