To be specific this is a photo taken from the balcony of room 106 at the Miller Manor in Charlotte Amalie on the island of St. Thomas. The view is looking east over the East Gregorie Channel and includes the June full moon, which was spectacular.
I was working on an HDR sequence and I really didn’t get what I wanted but I guess I’ll take this one. There were clouds moving across the moon and because these exposures ranged up to 30 seconds, it was hard to get the moon in its full glory.
This is one of those shots, by the way, that I figured was a once-in-a-lifetime shot. It’s not at all likely that I’ll be in room 106 at the Miller Manor when a full moon rises over Charlotte Amalie ever again. Though I’d be happy to go back to the Miller Manor.
