I have been trying to photograph the moon for a week now, and every time I am able to do so, it descends behind the trees of or neighborhood. So, last night I finally got a clear shot at it!
I remember living “in the city” and missing the moon. The skies were too bright to see the moon (forget about seeing the stars) properly. If possible, I recommend (while on Sanibel) going to Bowman’s Beach after dark – at least once during your stay – on a clear night. The stars are amazing!
I’m afraid that as of right now, I can only offer you that little tip, and this photograph of last night’s moon with that black . . . black . . . . sky.
