good moon rising…..
Thank you all for your votes and comments on my previous post….
It looks like the first image seems to be the winner (11 to 6 – with 5 undecideds), but I loved the comments which helped me to see the why behind your choices. I’ll have to admit to favoring the first shot myself after seeing it through your comments. I believe it was the reflection that did it for me…. right side up or upside down 😉
This was the moon coming up that same evening after an extremely pleasant stroll on the beach. It was a waxing gibbous moon (I looked it up)…. not quite a full moon at this point, but close. I never paid a lot of attention to how the phase of the moon influences the extent of the tides…. but seeing it in real life (as opposed to a text) is making it quite clear.
