Moon Roll

On a full moon night, I photographed from Kirby Cove. The moon was rising from behind and below the Golden Gate Bridge. As the moon rose, it seemed to be in position to “roll” along the suspension lines.

I exposed so that some of the background would be apparent, causing the moon itself to blow out with overexposure (this is seen more often with the sun than the moon). When I post-processed, I decided to leave the high contrast effect intact.

[600mm in 35mm terms, 2 seconds at f/5.6 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
