Elusive moon

I've long wanted to get a decent shot of the moon against a lighthouse, but it seems that I've never been out at the right time of the lunar cycle to have everything fall together the right way. There are only a handful of days in the year where the combination of evening light and angle of the moon coincide just so to provide the perfect picture. And that's not counting having the weather cooperate, or my being anywhere near a lighthouse when that happens.

Such was the case with this photo. I spent a week in Algoma, Wisconsin, hoping things would work out for my long-sought moon/lighthouse photo. No dice. I was able to catch the crescent moon as it rose over the steeples of St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

You'll be the first to know when I finally catch that photo.

Hi James! I just noticed that you are in Elgin. I lived in Algonquin until 1978, when I was 11. My dad moved us to Texas, and I've been here ever since.

Small world! I love this photo! Beautiful!
