moon over Lake Ontario 6:03 am 19 Feb 2019

Winter Moon over Ontario

Watching the full moon set over Lake Ontario is a winter treat. For several months the northwesterly azimuth is right, but… with great lakes come thick clouds. I’ve learned to try to get a photo as soon as I see it. Waiting till it’s a huge orb low on the horizon usually means disappointment.

Today, I plodded out through the snow at 5:40 a.m. Got a couple quick shots through the trees as it disappeared. The terrible photos do have an eerie appeal, however, after cropping and tweaking the exposure. (See below) I got a better shot at 6:03 a.m. (above)
