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..

    I think it’s a great result. I’ve favourited it, not just because of the quality of the image, but because I believe a photographer’s notes must always tell the story behind the image. Good on ya!

  • Thanks very much David mate, appreciate that! :)
