I was up pre dawn driving to shoot wildlife. As it began getting lighter out I notice the beautiful colors illuminating the sky to the east of me before sunrise. I immediately pulled over and set up fast to capture a composition with those glowing colors. I dropped my rag i was using to clean my lens, when I noticed behind me the moon was setting. I had to think fast, do I shoot the sunrise or the moon. The moon won out and it turned out not to be any ordinary moon set, but a Strawberry Moon set with a sprinkle of Sahara Dust & Natural Fog. Its normal to get a lot of Sahara dust that time of the year in our area. I then continued on with my drive to my destination to shoot wildlife., Overall it was great morning just being out in nature, and pretty lucky getting to shoot that Strawberry moon set with great atmosphere when my target was wildlife.
