Queen Anne Moonrise

One in a while, the moon rises above Queen Anne hill in Seattle, at just the same time the sun sets in the opposite direction. The two sources of light gave the windows and homes in this shot an additional glow. And, the cloud cover on the moon plus ambient sunset light on the structures, allowed for a single exposure, capturing moon and houses both. Often, I have to expose for either the moon or the scenery or both. This was also a blue moon -- in August 2012.
