Full thanksgiving moon rise over Los Angeles

Here’s the stack to show the sequence of the thanksgiving moonrise. This one was cool because it played peek-a-boo during the early stages of the rise but then didn’t pop back out until it got a bit higher above the clouds. I always look for the rise times that happen a little bit after sunset. This is the best time to balance the brightness of the moon with the city. When it rises too late, it gets a lot harder to expose correctly for both the moon and the city lights. When it rises too early you don’t get the prominent city lights. I’ve gotten to shoot quite a few this year (and got skunked by quite a few as well) and it’s cool how each has its own mood given the clouds/smog/etc that day. The city was super clean in this sequence due to the storm from the day prior. Taken with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 300mm f/4.
