High Tide, Setting Crescent

We went out to Starrigavan to check on the high tide. It was forecast to be one of the highest of the year, and there was a bit of atmospheric bonus that looked promising to get higher than that from back at the beginning of the year. It did end up being higher, but it turned out not the highest. I could see by the line of grass ground into the road that the tide had been an inch or two higher (not too long) previously. I may write up a separate post about that.

This evening I was lucky enough to catch a very young moon setting. It was pretty amazing, and I feel fortunate to have even got the shots I have here – as it was only visible for a short time and I didn’t have a good setup to try and capture it with my camera (but I did have my camera, which I had almost left at home, since it was dark).
