Moonrise on Lake Pepin

The full moon was rising over Lake Pepin as I was taking the image of the lake posted yesterday. I thought there was enough balance in the sky and the lake to get them both in the image so I moved the camera around to give it a try.

There was a hint of color in the thin clouds. The lake was picking up that light. The moon was rising higher into the evening sky.

Lucky timing got me to the lake at the right moment.

Click. The image is done. I make this picture. I realize it is cold when you are standing in 6" of snow in wingtips (I am here for work after all) and not boots. Time to move.

As I pack up quickly I hope I can get the moonrise on the next night.
