You can clearly see the soft painting this vast area! It was just starting.
I used my big lens to shoot this. I wanted to zoom in to compress the foreground/background. It makes the moon look bigger than what it really is. There’s no trickery involved here. It’s just the normal principal’s of Optics at work.
I guess in hindsight ,that I should of been several miles further out in the ocean to the west! That way when I zoomed in on the lighthouse,the moon’s size would of been even bigger!! and I guess lower in altitude too.
