Dec 18th - Scituate Moon Rise

Dallas "Big D" was on the minds of Peyton, Jim, Mike, Milt, Joani, Michelle, and Elaine.

"Scituate Moon Rise"

Tonight there was supposed to be a "supermoon" in our area. So I met up with a few members of HDP and headed for Scituate Harbor. I was amazed that there were only three (3) cars in the parking lot! So I opened up my tripod; messed around with some of the settings; and took a few test shots.  

When I turned around I was shocked at the "full" parking lot. Just where did they come from and when did this start to fill up. Before you knew it every square foot of real estate along the edge of the lot had been claimed!

I was not thrilled with the images I got but I managed to salvage this one and converted it to B&W.

Where in the World?
