Last night I had planned to make a second attempt to catch the moonrise, although it was later than last night and the sky was darker, so not optimun conditions for photography, but all that was moot because I stayed too late at a social event and missed it again. I resolved instead to catch the moonset in the morning but again I was a day late, because the moon was still too high in the sky as the day broke, so it was very blah. I still have this ultimate shot in my mind’s eye, the big yellow moon setting behind the shrimp boat rigging, reflected in the calm waters of the creek … Dream on. Maybe next time.
