Many people know by now that we love the full moon and devote some time to watching and photographing it. So last month, we watched the full moon rise over San Diego, but it was a really hazy day and not so good for photography (although still a nice moon rise).
Since then we’ve enjoyed a full month’s worth of beautiful sunsets. The beaches empty (except during Spring break) and become beautiful and dog friendly after 4pm. So we’ve had our share of sunset walks.
This month we returned to Shelter Island, known to photographers as a good spot from which to capture the full moon rise during February and March. There was a line of smog just over the horizon, with some clear areas above. Photographers with all varieties of equipment were lined up to capture the moment.
There’s also lots of human activity in the bay, motorboats, paddle boarders, kayakers, and lots of helicopters flying to and from the navy base across the bay.
My favorite moment of the full moon rising is just as it peeks and rises to a big ball sitting just on top of the horizon. It always takes my breath away. From where we were standing, the moon was positioned just behind a couple of skyscrapers and it looked enormous as it rose behind them. I never get tired of seeing the beautiful full moon.
P.S. As you can probably tell, since full moon was a while ago, we are behind on our posts once again.
Angel is still doing pretty well and we are getting ready for our departure from San Diego next week.
