Goodnight, moon

Goodnight, moon

I felt a bit out of place when I pulled up to Point Woronzof this morning and saw all of the other people there taking pictures. I say that because I pulled out a tripod and a 500mm lens, when everyone else was just doing a handheld shot with a point and shoot or had a small, wide angle lens camera on a tripod. I knew that in order to get the moon big in the frame, I would have to use the big glass. After getting a few shots I wanted, I took some images to create a panoramic of Mr. Susitna (Sleeping Lady) and the moon (which turns out to be a 100-inch print), then some a wide angle panoramic showing the large sheets of ice flowing in the inlet along with the background scenery. Capturing the moon in the evening, however, was a no-go because of the cloud bank that rolled in from Prince William Sound over the Chugach Mountains to turn the bright, full moon into a diffuse bulb.
