The bright full moon has the photographers out in force the past two nights.  Last evening Rich Miller of Kendall took this photo of the moon rising over Lake Ontario at Cleng Peerson’s Point at the north end of Kendall Road where it meets Lake Ontario. Norwegian immigrants settled in this area of Kendall.

I didn’t want to miss out in the fun. I took a picture of the moon over the lift bridge tower on Main Street in Albion. The bridge and the tower are iconic local landmarks.

I also took a picture of the moon over the frozen Erie Canal in Albion. The state Canal Corporation keeps a dredger, tugboats and other equipment in Albion over the winter with the vessels between the Main Street and Ingersoll Street lift bridges.

This photo doesn’t include the moon, but it was a nice sunset at the lake on Sunday.
