Moon Over the Ambassador Bridge


The Ambassador Bridge connects Windsor and Detroit. (Click image to view larger.) I took this last night, and no, I did NOT add the moon, it was really there just as you see it! The photo was taken from the very tip of Belle Isle. Windsor is on the left and Detroit on the right. I got more of Windsor than Detroit because I wanted to get the moon in, but I was IN Detroit when I took it. I had a wonderful assistant, Biker Buddy, who carried the tripod and helped me get everything set up just right. We had to bring a small tripod, because we rode there on our bikes. I took a lot more pictures and am eager to share them with you! YAY!

Oh, Mary, what a gorgeous shot! I love it. Can't wait to see the others! I have to get myself a tripod, keep forgetting...

This is great! You know you need to blow this up and frame it or print on canvas, right? It's very pretty.

Very nice and the moon makes it perfect.

Thank you so much Fenix, Joy, Slinger, and Dick for your kind comments!

fenix, a tripod is a great investment, but barring one, there is often a picnic table, wall, fencepost, windowsill, highway barrier or other object you can set the camera on and use the self timer.

Fantastic shot!!

My photos of the moon never really turn out...usually just a big blob in the sky for me.

Thanks so much Erin and North Bay! :-D

The best moon shots are with the sky still fairly bright in the evening so that the contrast isn't so high or the moon will be over-exposed.
