Another great one. Poor little lighthouse looks embarrassed.

Thanks, Guy! Funny how with the location of the moon this month, it looks like the moon is talking to the lighthouse! And yeah, the full moon sure puts the light house to shame! I was just so glad the moon broke through the clouds! It had looked so hazy, I was expecting it would be a wasted trip because the moon wouldn't even be visible until it was pretty high up. Did you see the one on BNP taken just a bit before this one?

wow - Thanks Bruce! One of my monthly challenges is trying for the full moon rising over Thacher Island. The location where you have to go to view it from the coast changes so much that it's been a great astronomy course to try to figure out ahead of time where to go, and then be graded by just how far off from the alignment I was looking for I got. This particular evening, I hit it just right!
