Here is a shot of Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach the night before the official Full Moon. I do my "full moon" shots the evening before the true full moon because on that night the sun is barely down below the western horizon. The partially illuminated western sky provides some soft illumination of the eastern horizon as the moon rises. The moon itself must be exposed as a separate photo as it is in full daylight. The isolated moon is then placed over the white hole in the primary picture.
