I have had the privilege of witnessing 3 full moons rise over the Atlantic off the coast of Mount Desert Island this summer. They have all been spectacular and humbling. The Harvest Moon tonight topped them all. I made it down to the spot I chose on the cliffs just as the moon was starting to rise above the horizon. It promised to be quite a show and it did not disappoint. Scrambling to get my tripod set up and level, my first shot of the evening turned out to be the one I chose for my photo of the day.
As the moon rose in the sky, the reflection on the water increased. My second favorite picture of the day captured this reflection nicely.
