I realized that there was a full moon tonight after we had dinner. It was after 7 but I checked to see where the moon would be rising and it appeared that it would be over the pier. The only problem was that it was supposed to rise at 7:37 PM. Remember, I said it was already after 7. I couldn’t resist though so I quickly put some settings in the camera, set it on the tripod, jumped in the car and headed for Emerald Isle. When I arrived at the bridge it was 7:44 and the moon was already quite high so I decided to improvise. I knew I had missed the opportunity of getting it rising over the pier so I did a u-turn at the end of the bridge and pulled off the road so that I could walk down near the water.
It was a beautiful evening and the sun was setting as the moon was rising. My photo would have looked better over the pier but you gotta do what you gotta do. I decided that a photo over the trailer park was better than no photo. *grin* It is a picturesque trailer park with a pier and a sea wall on the sound side of the bridge. I still think it is pretty. What do you think?
