Moon Rise Over Queen Anne

The moon rising over Queen Anne hill, with silhouettes of two Canada Geese (Branta canadensis ). This was the scene I was shooting, waiting for a flock of birds to fly directly over the moon. I've seen the local geese do this occasionally as they're moving for the evening. It didn't happen on this night.


Single exposure, RAW, Manual, 1/640 (to capture bird motion), ISO800, f7.1. Shot just as the sun dropped below the horizon. Tweaked exposure, contrast and applied some NR in Lightroom.
