Delta Lake State Park

Last night was the first “super moon” of the year, the last full moon of winter, the “Worm Moon”. I had a great plan. I would be at Bellamy Harbor to photograph the sunset, then turn around and capture the moon rise. I knew exactly where I would be to capture both moments. It would be easy, the two events were minutes apart.

Driving home from work there were a few clouds in the sky but that was OK, it would add to my sunset. Driving East from Syracuse there were not as many clouds in that direction which is what I would need for the moon rise. It was a good plan.

As I made dinner I noticed the sky was getting cloudier. It only had to hold off until 7:30pm. By then the moon would have cleared the horizon and I would have my image. It was not to be. By 6:30pm, when I would have left to go to the park, there was barely any blue left in the sky. Damn, those clouds moved fast.

So, rather than a cool post with a sunset and a moon rise, you get another view of Sunday’s sunset at Delta Lake. This one has a little more of the ice in the frame…
