the Moon and a Balloon

This morning when I left the house I noticed two things, the beautiful full moon and a hot air balloon. My plan was to stop along the way to work and get a good shot of the moon as it set behind the mountain. The hot air balloon headed south at a pretty good pace, so I quickly turned into a parking lot an jumped out of the car.

I got a call from a good friend letting me know the moon was very pretty tonight. I knew I could not get out east fast enough so I shot it from my neighborhood. I ran outside with my tripod, my 7D, my 500mm lens, and no shoes. Of course I did not like the view from right out front my house, or one door down, or two doors down, or three doors down. Moral of the story, these socks are shot. IMG_9316
