Blog: New Release Of "Buck Moon"! - 8/25/2020

Introducing my new release 'Buck Moon'! This photograph was taken on July 2, 2020 at 9:30 p.m. and was created by shooting 13 horizontal images and then combining them in Adobe Lightroom and then cropping them to this 2:5 ratio panoramic. This was such a wonderful evening sitting and watching the moon rise over the lake, the fish jump and summer evening unwind in the mountains. There is no place I would rather be than sitting in a place like this.

Buck Moon


Limited Edition of 100 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

The full moon in July is often called the Buck Moon because early summer is when the buck deer grow their antlers. This was just a few days before the full moon but I thought the title fit. This isn't far from my wife's family cabin and we love spending time there. This night I set up to photograph the sunset but it was rather lack luster so despite the mosquitoes I convinced my wife to wait until the moon was above the peaks and reflecting on the water, I just love how this turned out. I have always loved the reflection of the moon on the water and seeing it over mountains on a clear night is always spectacular to me. This was such an amazing night and well worth the wait and a few mosquito bites!

I shot 13 horizontal photographs starting at the shoreline and panning upward after each shot to capture this. I then merged them in Adobe Lightroom and cropped the image to this 2:5 ratio panoramic.

I hope you are enjoy this photograph! If you are looking for a tall panoramic image to fill a space on your wall and you love the moon rise reflecting on the water as much as I do then this is the image for you!
