Eastern Point Light

The word over the weekend was that the Super Moon was going to dazzle the eastern sky when it rose on Sunday night, so Steven Perlmutter, Mike Tully and I set out for Gloucester, MA on Sunday night to capture it rising over Eastern Point Lighthouse. It would be a two-fer. We could shoot the sunset then reposition out on the jetty to shoot the moon.

The first part of our plan worked fine. The sunset was great (though not spectacular) but a wedge of clouds pretty blocked the moon. We left the area around 9:00PM only to watch the moon rise above clouds as we headed out on the highway.

So here is a shot from the more successful part of the night — a long exposure of sunset behind Eastern Point Light.
