Last night was the Waxing Gibbous moon which is my favorite day to take full moon shots. At the last minute, I went outside just beyond our back deck on the golf course, set up my tripod and took some shots of the beautiful golden moon as it rose behind the trees. What a site!
I knew exactly where it would rise due to my handy dandy Photographer’s Ephermis. That’s fancy talk for a free desktop application that can pinpoint the exact location of a rising moon, rising/setting sun, etc. I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s such a wonderful tool, I wanted to paste the link here again in case you’re interested.

There’s nothing like standing outside waiting for that moon to rise. It’s so exciting to me!
