Cold Moon Rising [over Glenville Lake, Fayetteville, North Carolina], 12/22

The first moonrise 4 hours & 34 minutes after full moon.

Waiting for the Cold Moon

This would have been my most anticipated shoot in a long time. I was excited about it. Moonrise was at 5:23 pm; but, it did not show at my location until about 30 minutes later. This because of the elevation at the lake. Nonetheless, signs are posted at the Mazarick Park that visitors are allowed access to the park from 8:00 am until dusk–5:36 pm yesterday. I looked it up.

Not wanting to break the rules, I packed up and went to my van about 5:40 or so. As I walked there I could see the moon rising through the trees. Oh my–the shots I could have had. I need a location without a curfew. White Lake in Bladen County is a posibility. If so, I’d likely await the January full moon- the Wolf Moon.

To do this right, I need to go early and find a place directly across from the azimuth of the moonrise. That may be a challenge.

As I look at the map, the area I need is residential. The night of the full moon is also the night of the next Total Lunar Eclipse–photographing it over water would be interesting.

Stay tuned…

From Cycling Experiences to jalexartis Photography, 12/06

Times are a changing…

Thanks to people at Automattic [owners of WordPress.Com], my recently migrated CE Blog was trashed as it related to photographs in blog article galleries. I fixed all of November’s galleries and a few at the end of October.

The source blog for the migration is intact. I am using this blog [the one migrated from CE],  for photography. Essentially, of late, I have blogged more with pictures anyway–no more cycling here[as I  expunge related articles and others not pertaining to photography]. The process takes time. If I have cycling post, they will be in the Cycling Experiences Blog

I intend that Cycling Experiences remain online for the foreseeable future. I trust my readers will be here with me [and there for occassional pieces]. Thank you for your continued support.

Best!

James
