Moonrise over Siouxland, Rural Plymouth County

11 Dec

Moonrise photographs are always eye-catching. And generally professional photographers and other serious photographers use a long lens and shoot when it is ideal to show the moon in all its glory. But sometimes it’s just fun to capture it when it’s there. And recently, again experimenting with a small mirrorless camera and less than telephoto lens I photographed the moonrise in Plymouth County, Iowa. Even though it is December, there is still no snow on the ground, so no light reflection bouncing off the earth and “filling” the scene with additional light. But I was happy with my results, along with a barn image I found earlier before heading home.
