Ah, the ‘Hunter’s Moon Rising’. One more of the ‘composite shots’ I love creating, this one built around the recent event called the ‘Hunter’s Moon’, or full moon back in September at the time of the Vernal Equinox.
For those who have kindly read (thanks!) some of my previous ‘moon shot’ posts, you might recall how I’ve been chasing the moon well, just about all year. The nighttime sky this year managed to provide so many great photographic opportunities, I took it upon myself to not only get out with my camera to shoot some of them, but also use them as an excuse to really learn the ‘ins-and-outs’ of nighttime photography- something my love of the dawn and all things morning use to make extremely challenging.
The toughest part of putting this composite ‘fantasy’ shot together was the morning bike ride/mountain climb to get the bridge shot before the sun came up and ruined things- not that the sun rising is a BAD thing, I just knew I wanted a photo of the…DAWN right before the sun poked its head up above the horizon.
So, with moon shots accomplished, (during a four hour shoot in the ‘brisk’ morning hours) and bridge shot done in slightly better temps, the fantasy became reality!
As the title of this piece states, this one is a tribute to my ‘Z’ spot. ‘Z’ representing my online shop over at Zazzle. I’ll mention again (as I did in my first Zazzle-related post), there’re not too many products YET… but they’ll happen just as this OBZERVASHUNAL spot did… a little at a time.
Oh, I do have a couple things up using this ‘Hunter’s Moon’ image thingy… take a look if you’re so inclined. If nothing else comments are always welcomed!
