Full Moon Rising

I spent an early fall evening perched on top of a hospital parking garage hunting a full moon. This was a fun photo to make. I really had to earn it.

There was a thick layer of clouds right on the horizon that I knew would be trouble. I was hoping the moon would either break through or the clouds would thin out. 

I waited impatiently as the minutes ticked by. Just as I was about to lose hope, I could see a sliver of the orange moon peeking through the clouds. 

It wasn't my ideal framing, but the new Westin hotel with the ever present Nashville cranes made a nice setting for a bright orange full moon.

I'll definitely be back at this spot, especially for a sunrise.
