Havasu Landing, Lake Havasu, CA

Took a night walk with my wife and Lap Dog Knits and her husband from their lake house at Havasu Landing down to the water for some night photography.  Hoping to capture some good night skies for Skywatch Friday. Wow, what a night... full or nearly full moon raising over the water, with the lights from Havasu City on the other side of the lake reflecting on the water... really pretty, perfect night for some moonlight photography!
16-35mm wide angle lense, 10 second exposure
24-70mm lens used for this shot... moon was just out of the frame. I like the moonlight reflected on the water.
View north towards the campground
View south towards the Landing
Lap Dog Knits and her Hubby, version #1...
And my favorite shot of the night, Lap Dog Knits and Hubby, version 2, enjoying a beautiful moon-rise!
If you celebrate Christmas, hoping it was a good one! Linking to Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from all over the world. Have a great weekend, and Happy New Year!

  2. Nice! I hope to get some night shots done during the holidays - but no full Moons for me.

    Hope you are having a good Christmas and have a good New Year.

  19. Your photos never fail to disappoint - another set of beauties! Those first two are my favorites. I LOVE that "starburst" around that gorgeous full moon, and the reflections in the water are so, so pretty!

    I'm delighted to hear that a photographer of your caliber is reading and enjoying "Understanding Exposure." I'm just hoping I understand "Understanding Exposure!" LOL

    Wishing you a New Year filled with happy, photogenic moments! :-)
