I've seen a few shots like this over the years and really wanted on of my own. I've been watching the moon charts for the past month hoping that the moon would rise full in the early evening when there was enough ambient light to retain detail in both the moon and the landscape. Tonight it was on!
My friend Katherine had suggested that we get together for dinner so that I could give her the images from an engagement shoot I had just done for her. I had to put her off for an hour or so so that I could come and get this. Fortunately for me, she's a photographer that understands my obsession :).
