Sky Watch - Moon rising

First, a nice sunset;

and then the full moon peeked above the hills east of Frederick. These first three shots were taken from the top of a parking garage in the first few minutes of the moon's rise. The last two were taken from ground level about 30 minutes later. All shot with my 200 mm lens and cropped for posting.

I can't imagine how much fun it was to sit and wait for these shots! Nature at its best! I'm with "a rural journal." Love the sequential shots.

We had not a proper evening for moon photography - I'm glad you had!

A fantastic sequence Lew! Great captures. I saw it, but my photos were duds. Ah well, I only have to wait about 18 years or so to try again!
