(subtitle - I really should have been sleeping when I took these pictures)
The full moon this week presented some good photo opportunities - I just wish I knew better what I was doing with long night time exposures. Fortunately, digital film is cheap.
So I was up through some late night and early morning hours this week, but it was pleasant, mild weather, and good photo practice.
Photo to left is the moon about ready to set, around 5:45 am along Hiway 46 above Cambria, CA. 1700 ft above the fog. Pentax K20D with 300 mm lens. Underexposed -2.0 EV to show lunar details.

Golden hills, creeping fog, moonset and sunrise combine for interesting textures and colors.
Thursday morning around 6:10 am. Sunrise is still coming at 6:30 am.
