Tallassee Sunset and After

A couple weeks ago, I grabbed my camera and took to the streets to get some pictures around Tallassee of a sunset. Here are the best of that outing:

 A few nights ago featured a so-called "super moon," the moon being at its closest point to Earth in its orbit and full. I was leaving Montgomery after shooting the Huntingdon College graduation, and the whole way back to Tallassee I was contemplating pulling over on the side of the interstate to catch the moon close to the horizon (the moon is magnified by the curvature of our atmosphere when near the horizon). I held back until I got to the where Hwy-229 crosses the Tallapoosa River on the way into Tallassee. Here's the best of my attempts to shoot the moon, plus a bonus pic looking down the road.

(The one above was actually taken after I got home to my 170-500mm lens and better tripod. Thank you again, Diane Koart.)

These images were made possible, in large part, due to the fact that my wife allowed me to purchase Adobe Lightroom 4 as a reward for getting our taxes done. I've really enjoyed it.
