    Full moon sets into Pacific Ocean.

    This past week we had a Full Moon on Wednesday 1/15/2014 . I try and photograph these around different areas of San Diego. On Wednesday evening I got a good shot of the moon rising over San Diego Bay.
    Thursday morning the moon was setting at 6:52 am. i decided to go to the ocean to see if I could get a photo of the moon setting into the ocean. I got up at 4 am and went to the Ocean Beach Pier. As i drove to the Pier which is 30 miles from my home I saw the brilliant moon hanging overhead. Every time I passed a body of water the shine from the moon was fantastic as the light reflected of the water.
    San Diego is having stunningly clear and dry weather and I anticipated a good photo opportunity for a stunning moon set. We also had some good surf which added to the photos. As the moon sank slowly into the crystal clear horizon it distorted and had an eerie look.
    I had not seen a moon set like this before it was fascinating for sure.
