Moonrise over San Francisco

I had set out to do this. I looked up the moonrise time, found what I had thought was an interesting vantage point, etc. But this was the most successful image of the evening, and I knew as soon as I had metered it that I needed faster film. From what I remember the exposure was 15-30 seconds with the lens wide open, I guess I was lucky not to have any planes fly by, I wasn't so lucky about the tourist boat under the bridge. Oh well, at least nobody can accuse me of Photoshopping it! After the moon got too far above the horizon the difference in values between it and the city were too great. I may give this another try when the moon is at perigee next month. In any case it was an interesting end to an afternoon and evening of hiking around the Marin Headlands.
