Moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean

Moonrise on St. Patrick’s Day along the coast on Amelia Island, Florida.

I’ve been super pleased with my new Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and as I’ve become more familiar with it I’ve ventured out and about more. I can’t say that I was ever a big moon or sunrise photographer before so I don’t think my new camera will change that but the few times I do point my camera at the moon or sun will be a more pleasurable experience. There’s really no post-production in this image except for a bit of a crop. The colors are as captured about 15 minutes after sunset. Tech notes – f11, 1/20, ISO 100 at 108mm.

Spring Break on Amelia Island

Lots of tourists in town.
St. Patrick’s Day full moon at the beach.
A great place to eat and drink.
Lots of beach, no people, and the surf temperature is a chilly 65 degrees.
Almost always the risk of a rip.
Flag flying!

Stacked against us day and night.

It looks bad and it is. There’s no other way to see it. Air pollution is just that, chemicals and toxins spewed into the air 24/7.
