Setting Full Moon at the Merced NWR

The Setting Full Moon at the Wetlands

For about a year now , I’ve been getting up early, way before sunrise, to walk around our neighborhood. I usually walk 4 mile, Monday through Friday. Every day after a Full Moon I think, “Wish I brought my camera”. Problem with that is, camera and lens is heavy and mostly, there isn’t a good location to take photos of the Moon and some other landscape. This morning instead of walking, I took a trip to the local wildlife refuge to see if I could get a few pictures. It was a nice outing and happy to get some keepers.
