I was driving home (20 miles), the Hunter's Moon dead-ahead, about an hour after moonrise. I was looking for something to include in the foreground. I was nearly home, and remembered this beautiful dolphin sculpture, in the Seal Beach Shopping Center. I opted to shoot automatic, setting the timer to trigger the shutter in 2 seconds. I had my camera on a tripod, and even though the lighting on the dolphin was subdued, I was very satisfied with the true color result.
