June Moonrise

In June, the Full Moon happens on the 5th and 6th (Friday and Saturday).  Unfortunately, it was raining and the skies were partially cloudy on those dates (5th and 6th).  The normal afternoon thunderstorms in the south.  I took a photograph of the Moon on the 4th when it was at 98% full, but even then it was cloudy.

Taken on June 4 at 21:40
Shutter Speed: 1/30
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 300mm
Nikon DX AF-S NIkkor 55-300mm

 

They were calling for clearing skies on Sunday evening, but there was still plenty of clouds around during the Moonrise at 22:30 EST.  I went to Union Point Park in New Bern, North Carolina to see if I can capture photographs of the moon rising under the US17/NC55 bridge over the Neuse River.

 

I used my Nikon D7500 with the Nikon DX AF-S NIkkor 55-300mm for the photography on the 4th, and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm | 1.8 G for the moonrise photographs. I don’t think they were my best photographs, but I haven’t posted anything for several weeks because of the rain.
