Moonlit Night Over Carlin Park

Aug 24, 2010 | Florida Beaches & Coasts, Nighttime HDR

Minus the mosquitoes biting us, we had a action packed evening at Carlin Park shooting the moonrise, or at least when the moon decided to show itself. It took awhile for the moon to climb over all the clouds. We were hoping the clouds would have moved by then but they seem motionless the entire night.

This photo was shot in aperture priority mode. Camera was set at f/22 to get the longest exposure possible for a smooth water effect. I also have a few shots set to a faster f-stop but this was the effect I was going for with this photo. I’ll post the other HDR images in the days to follow.
