Rising and Shining and Setting and Shooting

I’ve discussed in an earlier post the ins and outs of astrophotography, or pictures of the night sky. In my examples, however, I focused more on the Milky Way than anything else. One of the keys to getting a shot like that is to find a night when the moon is at it’s smallest phase as a full moon will greatly detract from the stars’ illumination.

The great thing about the sky, however, is that it’s so big that even when the Milky Way might not be an option for a photo, there is still plenty to shoot. In a continuation of my visual language posts, I want to share some photos of either the sun (sometimes rising, sometimes setting, as it does) and the moon.
