Moonrise of 6th August, 2009 – 5:45pm. Sunshine Beach, Noosa Headlands rocks. Unfortunately this evening there was some cloud on the horizon, so the moon was late getting up. I have everything set up to get this pelican as a silhouette over the rising moon too.. Bugger! As it turns out, the clouds actually gave this shoot a dramatic dynamic anyhow, and the well behaved pelican stood nice and still for the shooting, dispite the wave spray.. I think he was captivated with this beautiful moon!
I just couldn’t get the camera low enough to use the 800mm with this and get land in the shot, as for the cloud..
