Full Moon Over San Diego

Balboa  122Hector has captured some stunning full moon moments in his photographs in the last few months.  So I did a little research and found out that this time of year, Shelter Island is the best location from which to watch and photograph the full moon over the San Diego cityscape.Balboa  074

Our plan was to go to Shelter Island on the night of, and the night before the full moon.  We joined a number of other photographers (we were not the first to think of this) at Shelter Island and waited in anticipation.Balboa  131

We definitely plan to continue seeking out the magical full moon during the rest of our journey.
