Dawn Photography: The New Moon Rising in a Clear San Francisco Sky

San Francisco Piers, bridge photography, new moon rising

…a rare clear sky’s viewing of a New Moon rising…


Now so much of an update as it is a reposting as I rededicate, rework, and position myself to add some new works to my kDesignationz shop at Redbubble.

…besides, we’re still getting sporadic rain, so what better was to cure the ‘gray-skies blues that a dawn shot of a New Moon in a clear sky?



Depending on the time of year, clear, warm mornings are a rare event here in San Francisco. Fog and chilliness are the order of the morning so often we just tend to expect it more often than not.Thankfully as I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions, I’m an early morning guy to my heart and soul. As I recall, I was up and going so early on this particular morning, I got to watch the skies fade from full black to this. (Note: I did assist this shot with a slight bit of filtering, not that it needed filtering!)

The gated walkway you see underneath the rising moon can actually be walked for oh, lets call it several hundred feet(sorry metrics). It’s all that and absolutely worth getting out of bed and outdoors to experience.


Just wanted to let you all know this shot is now available at kDesignationz, my Redbubble spot. The link I’m providing will open up on the ‘framed prints’, but don’t let that stop you from checking out all the other variations on offer. There are other options available for me to use with other products, so those are on the way. As always, feedback of any sort is always appreciated!

    1. Much appreciated, brother! I could easily have lost myself to just soaking in the atmospherics of the moment. Fortunately, my brain and shutter finger linked back up in time. As for prints, yes, it’ll be available real soon!

        1. Serious? You just made my day, brother. Taking the time to comment makes my day. I’ll have a link added to the post hopefully tomorrow… Hey, I’m down for one of your books too! It’s all about supporting each other…

          1. Absolutely…I’m a huge fan of your work, brother…you’ve got talent! And your photos have the power to transport a viewer to another place, which is a special thing. I’ll keep a look out for the link!

          2. Saying thank you can’t begin to fit the bill, brother. I’m a big fan of your work as well. Your gifts are undeniable and real in a world that could stand a few more doses of undeniably real truth and vision.

            I’ve said it before, I say it again: Let’s BOTH keep going; developing our respective gifts, honing them to a fine edge. Something tells me we’re on parallel paths in that regard!
