Moon over Manitowoc Lighthouse.

While packing up my gear tonight in Manitowoc, Wisconsin after an editorial healthcare photography shoot I noticed the moon just starting to rise over Lake Michigan.  I quickly tossed my cases of lights into the back of the truck and bolted to the ferry dock to try and line the moon up with the lighthouse.  With the dock locked up for the winter I wasn’t able to get far enough north to line the moon up like I wanted and I was a few minutes to late, but I was kind of happy with what I got.  Thanks to my sister-in-law Joan Turba I knew tonight was going to be the brightest moon of the year.  Thanks Joan!

  • Joan - Ohhhhh that is beautiful! Thanks for taking and sharing the photo that we all see, but none of us can capture. Your cold-weather Packer games must have prepared you well for getting this shot on a very cold night. PS, if you can see a red star to the left of the moon, that is Mars.

  • Joan - Beautiful photo! That’s the one I dream of taking but never get. Being a bitterly cold night, those cold weather Packer games must have toughened you up to get this shot. BTW, if you can see a faint red star to the left of the moon, that is Mars. Its the 3M photo: Moon and Mars over Manitowoc. (I think I’m spending too much time on 3rd grade alliteration.)
