Wordless Wednesday #158 ~ Ocean Moon Shots

@ Cocoa Beach, FL, USA
During the recent full moon, I had some time to learn a bit about my camera.
It's not too hard to take a moon picture before full sunset.
The camera still has enough light to recognize a picture.
           The first night, after a very long eternal minute of holding my camera perfectly still, I came up with this shot that to me resembles a painting.
The second night, I went online and learned how to change the Aperture on my Nikon. 
          Because I didn't have to hold the camera so still so long, it actually got a picture of some waves!
          On the third night, I got a picture of the moon rising over the horizon.  The light on the left is a boat.
           I thought it sweet how the moon reflected on the water to the beginning of the path on the beach.
No retouching was done on any of these shots.
