Its been a month since the celebration in Tburg of the "Blue Moon," and today the rising moon also has special significance. The full moon today marks the "Mid-Autumn Festival" for followers of the ancient Chinese Tradition. Back in 2009 when I was living in Hong Kong I remember eating the infamous Moon Cake during this time of year. Although there was no moon cake this year, the moonrise over Sabang was quite spectacular. As a tech side note: I've been working with a tripod and some of my older lenses and all of the following images were created with a Tamron 90mm. Enjoy the images below!
