LENNARD ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE

20110628-20091003-IMG_6121I took this on OCT 3RD,2010. I had to wait 17 months to get this shot. I wanted to get a shot at sunset,from the air when the full moon was rising!
I got one shot at it per month. I needed to have no clouds in the west & no clouds to the east! If there were clouds to the west,the sun would be blocked & the land would be too dark. If there were clouds to the east,than I would have the light but wouldn’t be able to see the moon!
So I needed to have no clouds in both directions when the full moon was rising & that took 17 months!
I originally envisioned the full moon rising behind Tofino,but the moons orbit was way too far north to line them both up! So technically speaking………I’m still waiting! I now know the moon must have a very southerly orbit to even think about trying to do this again!
Sometimes I feel like such a child trying to figure these things out!
