So I had to leave my family’s harvest moon dinner celebration a little early to capture this image. It’s ok, I’m not the biggest fan of Chinese food but my dad kept on insisting that there wasn’t going to be a moon because of the clouds.
I left anyways and was determined to get a great shot of the moon. He was partially right. The clouds were really heavy in the early evening but luckily they started breaking up around 8p. By the time I made my way to the Washington Monument, I was in the middle of a photo party of about 10 other photographers all waiting and shooting.
