Qeba #1: Moonrise

It was one of those days that just worked out perfectly.  I finished my work early.  I took a look at the tide charts, the weather forecast, and the lunar calendar.  Everything aligned just right for a sunset/moonrise shoot with a slack tide.  So I made my way down to Charlestown Quononchotaug Beach, QEBA actually (Quonnie East Beach Assoc) where there was easy access to a quiet beach and some great low lying rocks.  

I set up for a seascape shoot featuring the large boulder that dominated the landscape.  The clouds moved out as the sun sank lower.  I gradually recomposed as the sun set and moon rose.  Shot number three is probably my favorite with light pastels, calm water, and a moon just visible above the clouds on the horizon.  

I was so happy with the results from this shoot I returned the next day for more!  You'll have to wait for the next blog post to see those!
