Autumn's Moon / by Conor Cunningham

 An almost full moon setting just as dawn is breaking.

I’ve an idea for a picture that I’ve been planning to take for a couple of years. You might ask what’s stopping me from taking the image, but the honest answer is it isn’t all that easy to get. First, the image needs to be taken on the morning after the full moon. Second, the image needs to be taken in late autumn or winter, and finally, the images requires good weather.

All three of these things aligned for me last week, but my son slept in and well, that was that. I arrived on location exactly when the image should have been taken, but my equipment was still packed away in my backpack and by the time I had everything setup, the show was over.

I did however managed to walk away with the above image. That’s an almost full moon setting over the hill’s of Oslo’s Nordmarka.
