Sunset over the Columbia River. Vancouver, Washington is the city across the river. (I cropped and sharpened this one a bit so that the silhouettes were sharper.)
The only thing I did to these pictures was crop them. The originals had the Columbia River in the foreground, and the light reflects really detracted from the moon rise.
I learned one thing tonight – I need a good tripod. The ones we have will not support the DSLR. So, I took off my shoes to fashion a makeshift tripod on the sand. Then, I used the timer feature to ensure that I did not move the camera. The shutter was kept open for about 5 seconds, so any small movement would have ruined the pictures.
