Shoot the Full Moon Set with Clearwater Beach Pier 60 in the Foreground






This is a unique chance to photograph the full moon setting at the same time the sun is rising.  This happens only on the morning following the full moon rise.  We'll start at Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach.  The moon sets at 6:39 and the sun sets at 7:09.  This will offer one of the best times this year to photograph the setting moon this year.

The best location will be north of the pier along the shore.  This will put the pier in the foreground as the moon sets.

Tripods are helpful but not mandatory, you can use higher ISOs and just the railing of the pier to aid in supporting your camera.
