Photo: "Glacier Moon Rise"

 
 

Last July, during a boat trip to Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, we anchored in Reid Inlet just before sunrise and ventured ashore to explore the beach around the base of the glacier. 

After returning to the boat and cracking open a few beers, we turned around to discover we were going to end an incredible day watching the full moon rise over the Reid glacier.

Over the past month or two, I've been trying to add variety to my postings here, showing not only the forgotten world, but also scenes from San Francisco and my travels.

In a few weeks my stream will be flooded with photos of abandoned buildings again because next Thursday, I embark on a week long road trip on the other side of the country, shooting hospitals and industrial sites.

As many of you know, documenting modern ruins has been my first love since I started seriously pursuing photography almost 5 years ago, so it's exciting to think about sharing dozens of new images from these locations with you upon my return.

For now, here's a photo, taken last month during the full moonrise, of another subject I have really enjoyed shooting recently.

Photo: "North Tower Moonrise"

On Tuesday night, I made the trek to the Marin Headlands to shoot the moonrise over the city and bridge with a few other Google+ photographers. Earlier in the day it seemed as though it would be a clear evening, but by the time we got to the headlands, it was fairly hazy. Interestingly enough, it gave the moon a very odd-shaped appearance at moonrise.
