FRISCO — Over the years, I’ve managed to get a handful of decent moonrise shots, and I’ve learned that, as often as not, there’s some luck involved. It’s easy enough to figure out when and where the moon will come up, and by now I know that the night just before the full moon is actually the best time, as far as the balance between light and dark. But the best shots, at least without using a filter or without having to do to much post-processing, are when just the right clouds are about to help slightly filter the bright moonlight, balancing it with the surrounding darker sky. I spent about an hour each of the last two evenings trying to get some good shots and this is what I came up with. I’m not totally happy with any of the images, but I sure enjoyed the chase!
