I went to the top of Grouse Mountain hoping for a stunning, look out as far as the eye could see type of a view. In reality the hot day in Vancouver provided a very hazy evening. I did see glimpses of the city below but did not provide the view I had imagined I might see. The moon however was large and brilliant. I sat completely alone watching the moon and just enjoying the evening.  Rather than trying to capture the whole mountainside view, I decided to get close and focus on the essential. I "broke the rules" some might say by choosing to place the moon in the center of the frame. The thing about rules though, is that they are just suggestions to get you started. Explore them, challenge them, re-write them.
