The plan for tonight was to capture the rising full moon behind the Bernal Heights Park peak. I arrived a bit early at my planned location to have enough time to find the best composition. Specially for photographs that show a special moon alignment, sometimes it is difficult to find the right spot because there are still a lot of power lines here in San Francisco. Luckily, this was not an issue tonight. While waiting for the moon I stayed busy checking my surroundings. I like following shot of the Bernal Heights Park with the pastel colored sky.
A low layer of clouds blocked the moonrise a bit, but eventually the moon showed up. The bottom part of the moon is still hidden by some clouds. But this makes it a bit more interesting as well than just having the plain moon.

Curious what focal length you had to use to get that size of a moon behind the radio tower. I’m guessing something in the 400-600mm (35mm equiv) range? It’s really a stunning shot.
Hi Rusty! Thanks! Good guess! This shot was taken at 400mm. -Daniel
Thank you, Martine and Steven!
