I had two objectives today after work. I wanted to find the horse statue a camper mentioned stumbling upon when taking a wrong turn on a trail, and I needed to try and get a photograph of the full moon. Although technically the moon is full tomorrow, I thought I’d snare two chances this month to get a worthy photograph – since both nights are scheduled to be clear. I settled on the moon rise as my photo of the day. It was beautiful down on the cliffs tonight. The moon was rising over the ocean at about 6:15 pm while the sun was setting at 6:38 pm. I managed to enjoy both the sunset and the moon rise in a span of about an hour. It was mesmerizing. I had some company down on the rocks during the sunrise but soon after the moon rose everyone else meandered back to the campground and I was alone to enjoy the solitude and soothing sound of the waves lapping against the rocks below me.
A few of my other photos from today – just for fun!
