Sunset with Docked Shrimp Boat

Sunset and a Shrimp Boat

I was searching for a spot to take the rising “super” moon on Sunday. Unfortunately along with the full moon comes high tide eliminating the best spots to get most local landmarks in the shot. I finally decided to try the road that crosses Folly Creek which would have the bonus of a good spot to see the sun go down.

A couple of commercial shrimp boats dock on this spit of land and make a nice addition to a sunset photo.

My moon shots were a bust due to my own failings. I thought the horizon was clouding over and that the chances the  moon would be visible at the horizon were low. So I walked away from the car without my tripod. Using the bridge railing to steady my shots wasn’t enough at the required slow speeds. Maybe the weather will cooperate next month, or maybe the next, for another try.

  1. Gosh, I knew I wanted to capture that moon.
    Didn’t realize it was a super moon, or I might have braved the cold.
    Anyway, the sunsets are great, and the boat adds so much atmosphere.

    Seek peace,

    Paz
