I took this November 20, 2010, last fall, while visiting my dad on the Eastern Shore in Cambridge, Maryland. I happened to luck out, not even knowing that the moon would be full that evening. I hadn’t brought my tripod with me that particular visit (slap me!), so I sat my camera on my camera bag which I placed on an overturned rowboat that rested in the grass by the water. I held my breath, (as I always do when my handy tripod isn’t along), and am pretty pleased with the results. :)

Nikkor 75-300 zoom lens.
