Sturgeon Moon Over Madison

Did you miss last week’s “Sturgeon Moon?” A beautiful sight rising over Madison’s Surf Club Thursday night.

It may be that the Native Americans around here knew this time of year to be the best for catching sturgeon in the waters of Lake Champlain and the Great Lakes. In any case, it makes for a splendid scene.

We enjoyed it so much we went back for another look the following night! A challenging shot without a tripod, but here are a few images in case you missed it:
