San Francisco’s Coit Tower lit up nicely as the moon passed behind and glowed like a crown… it was gorgeous to see it and though I have snapped Coit Tower with the moon many times, I have never seen it as I did tonight. It did keep me busy though as I ran all over Telegraph Hill with my Canon EOS 7D and a EFS 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS lens on a tripod trying to get the right angles. Did I succeed? Image is straight out of the virtual oven, unedited, and untouched by virtual hands.
