The full moon rising over the San Diego skyline from across the bay. The moon is just above the tops of the buildings with a dark black sky above that.

The Story Behind the Photo

I've always loved the photo Moonrise, Hernandez by Ansel Adams. However, I've never been to Hernandez and I have no connection to the town, but when I look at that image, it just resonates with me. I'm reminded of how small we are in the vastness of outer space. That we have our little towns and cities, but there is a whole universe to explore. Inspired by this idea, I went out to photograph my own moonrise over my home town.
