Full Moon, Ferry Boat and Space Needle

Date Taken: March 9th, 2020. 

Location: Bainbridge Island, WA, USA

Camera: Sony A7R4

Lens: Sony FE 200-600mm

Settings: 1/20th sec, f/6.3, ISO 1000, 600mm 


Shooting the Seattle skyline across Puget Sound from Bainbridge Island allowed me to use a really long focal length causing lens compression, making the moon look larger than life and the mountain (Mt.Phelps in Cascade range) to be closer to the city. I was lucky to be in a spot where the Bainbridge Island - Seattle ferry was in the perfect place. This one is a unique shot as it is hard to get the ferry and the moonrise timing and direction just right.
