Moonlight

I went out of town (unexpectedly) on Saturday, March 19 without my camera (gasp). The Moon was supposed to be closer to the Earth than it had been in 20 years. My Facebook feed was slammed with people (President Whitlock included) putting up their photos of the Moon and I was feeling a little bad that I didn't have anything to offer. On the way back to Richmond the night of Sunday, March 20 I noticed the Moon still looked pretty big so I headed back out to campus after dropping the family at home. It was a little lower in the sky than I would have liked. The Moon tucked itself behind buildings as I looked everywhere for an EKU landmark to stick the composition. Tough angles. I found a few. Here they are. Even 3 verticals, which, I tried everything to avoid. In this case they worked. I rarely shoot that way. Just a personal thing.
