Bathing in the moonlight. My take on this recent celestial event!

It was funny, I knew it was happening but didn’t really plan on shooting it at all. Ended up enjoying some beach time to shoot the waves and the post sunset glows when I noticed the moon was faintly emerging from the cloud layer below the horizon; it was such a nice welcome surprise. The beach was desolate, no other people at all. It was surreal. I have a bunch more photos but just sharing this initially as it’s most certainly different from the shots I’ve seen!

Looks like my OC is named Ardan, enjoy him
He loves human space travel even though he’s more advanced than them. Being on earth since the 60s he had to adapt to the times and being the big space nerd that he is, he has a huge nasa patch and patches from every American space mission, loving the Apollo 1 patch the most, he would sit at Cape Canaveral and watch every single launch, he even cried when the challenger blew up in the 80s..that’s all I got on him..enjoy this big space nerd

Cape Canaveral National Seashore

It felt like I was having beach withdrawals and so I drove to Cape Canaveral today. It was really cloudy and drizzly and there was light fog on the shore when I got there which was perfect for me and then it cleared up eventually. I had the shore all to myself again. A tiny break from my Smoky Mountain photos! Oh and I got to test out my new 4 stop hard ND Grad filter on these shots.

SpaceX lands its Falcon 9 rocket at sea, following first launch since August
Following today’s rocket launch, SpaceX successfully landed its Falcon 9 on the company’s drone ship in the Pacific Ocean.

The company has been on a hiatus from spaceflight, after one of its Falcon 9s exploded on a launch pad in Cape Canaveral, Florida, in September. Read more
