The full moon rose over Lake Superior yesterday evening just before sunset. Practicing my best lazy boy photography methods, even though I had researched many great places to photograph the full moon rising over Gitche Gumee within various 45 minute drives, I decided to just pop down to the shore of the big lake which is 800 yards from my house. This started nine hours of photography on Lake Superior! I found the Lesser Yellowlegs from their southern migration at 6:15 am which ended my ten hours!
