There’s a Full Beaver Moon coming up on 11/30, but today I’ll offer this one from 2015 at the end of Old Enfield Road (Quabbin Gate 5) in Belchertown.

While the thin clouds interfere with the moon detail I like the wispy pattern of them and the brilliant color they are catching from the setting sun.

I haven’t been out at night in quite a while for the moonrise, shot a few from the backyard after it rises above the trees that surround us, but maybe I’ll give it a try.  It’s early enough now to still be within my waking hours.  🙂

    That’s a memorable beaver moon. I’d slap my tail on the water for one like this in a heartbeat.

  2. A little moon detail is worth sacrificing for the colorful halo of wispy clouds.

    The golden halo is outstanding! I enjoy seeing evening moonrise images like this, and I can just about imagine what a lovely time of eve it is for all of the nocturnal critters to be out and about.

    Here’s my confession: a sharply defined moon in a cloudless sky never appeals to me as much as something like this. It isn’t just the color, although that certainly adds to the effect. It’s the diaphanous swirl of clouds that seems to bridge the distance between the moon and our eyes.

    • I’ve shot many full moon portraits and have developed the same attitude as you. They all look the same, basically. I think the phases offer a little more variety but still are enhanced with some trees framing them of a few meaningful clouds floating alongside.

    I love the halo around the moon and the detail in the clouds – they make the image special.
