I flew to the California coast this past weekend, to capture November’s “Beaver” full / supermoon.
There were three photo shoots planned: the setting of the near-full moon on Sunday morning, the full moon rising on Sunday evening and the full moon setting, at dawn on Monday morning. For each shoot, I challenged myself to plan and capture at least two different vantage points to highlight our lovely moon.
During the dark hours, the #Supermoon was so bright that people who saw the El Matador Beach cliff images before I posted them were wholly surprised when I told them that the shots were of the setting moon, not the setting sun. Key indicators that it is not a sunset: stars are faintly visible and there is a flashlight being walked up the stairs.
