Moonset

I post this as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge (Rise/Set).  This is a moonset taken at a long exposure in Grand Haven, Michigan.  But in reality, any moonset like this is really the reflection of a sunrise/sunset since it is borrowed light. 🙂

Definitely got a bit of lens flare on the next one!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunrise/Sunset

Sunset over Lake Michigan in January, when the ice extended for miles offshore.

The Moon Over Lake Michigan

A Lunar Perspective

The first two photos were taken on March 2nd in Grand Haven, Michigan.  The moon was setting in the west almost exactly as the sun was rising in the east.  Note the refraction of the moon in the glass of the lighthouse.  I didn’t even notice that until later. 

The third photo was taken just after January’s supermoon.  These are posted for the “Out of This World” weekly photo challenge.

Cresting Ice

Another one from Lake Michigan.  As the ice melted, it left a growing layer of sand that was mixed in with it from wave action.  Taken in January.

The waves eventually got to him, but both he and his equipment were OK.  Taken in November 2017–Grand Haven, MI.
