Super Moon Mixed with a Prairie Sentinal

Post by RBorud » Wed Jan 03, 2018 4:07 am

Hi All
On the way home on the 31st of this December, before the drunken rush began, and while the sun was just setting, I worked another prairie sentinel which is not part of the spoken of series, but done at the spur of the moment. To the south of St.Paul while driving home, I discovered the moon rising above an elevator a long way off the highway I was driving and quickly found an exit to a country road that was in line with the elevator and the moon, and worked my way until I got into a position as you see then drove back and forth until the size of moon worked out to a size that I felt right with the scene and the lens I had with me. The big problem in Minnesota on that night was -15 below and wind, after about two minutes of shooting I was almost convinced I was going to die so I fled to the car and proceeded home. This is what I came up with, with modest work. I hope you like it.
Thanks for looking. RBorud

It's wonderful just as it is (with "modest work", and it also contains the potential for being turned into many other things in your imaginative vision and with your artistic methods. I feel the cold and the silence in this one. You make me feel like we're basking in heat here at 20 degrees....

I am soooo jealous! I often try to shoot the full moon at sun rise but in winter especially, clouds usually obscure. I caught your same moon at about the same angle from horizon on the evening of 31st from my balcony, just before it disappeared into clouds - and hasn't been seen since! - and not nearly as spectacular a foreground. And admittedly, 40 degrees warmer too :)

This is the a hugely compelling image!

The cold. The silence. The picture is visual poetry. Wow.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
