almost full

Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar Manual Focus Lens for Canon

Dramatic color rendition of a near-full moon taken on May 13th, 2014, one day before the actual full moon. I’ve found that both early morning and late evening scenes like this need to be captured in a hurry, not only because they are so fleeting in time, but also because you never know when, or if, you’ll get another chance. It’s so rare to be able to compose a full moon with a simple series of buildings, let alone with the combination of moonlight and the very distant setting sun illuminating the whole scene providing this contrasty and subdued color profile. This would make a fantastic display as a floating canvas print. Taken with a Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar manual focus lens.

This is almost exactly the same composition taken in the early morning when the rising sun created this pastel-like scene in the sky. Capturing the same image at different times of the day, especially the most dramatic times, is one of my favorite things in all of photography.
