Moonrise over the Amazon - EXPLORED

Explored January 28, 2009, #250


I have shot many a sunrise and a sunset, but never a "moonrise" and certainly, never a moonrise over the Amazon.


We were headed back to Manaus, when Eni (our guide) ran up to me, pointing over my shoulder. "Look, Sheree, a moonrise."


I turned and gasped. I was already entranced by my Amazon adventure by night, but this was the jewel in the crown.


My heartfelt thanks to my husband, David, who allowed me to use him as a tripod. David is often mentioned in my image descriptions. So, I am going to include one of the funniest blogs he has ever posted. He is deathly afraid of heights, but I talked him into not only being my human tripod, but into zip-lining through the jungle in St. Lucia. I laughed, till I cried. It's really funny.
