Early on in my photography career, I used to go out and shoot events like this much more. I enjoy doing it, but I don't always take the time to go out and capture it. Last week, there was an enormous full moon and as it was rising, it was this incredible orange color. I headed down to the beach with my tripod, 35-350mm lens and 2X extender, giving me the massive 700mm zoom. You want the moon to look as big as possible, but at the same time, you want to give it some scale, so that lens is the perfect choice.
I remember trying to get this shot in particular many times in the past. It's nice to finally have it.
