IMGP-7556

362 sec. @ f4..... an unusual evening on the beach...

the air was damp, the moon was @ 77% and mostly obscured by clouds on the horizon....

the jet traffic was leaving a trail tonight, kinda unusual..... there were 2 small brighter clouds on each side of the moon, I just assumed they were illuminated by the moon....

this 6 minute exposure revealed what was actually happening, a 22º Lunar halo and Moon Dogs.....

little of this was visible to the naked eye, but the signs were there, perhaps next time I'll clue in a bit sooner :-)
