The Sunday Night photowalk filled up really fast, so we are opening up a 2nd event the next evening! Technically it’s still a full moon. 🙂

The “Hunter’s Full Moon” will be October 9th. It will be very unique this year because the moonrise will be directly over downtown, and will happen less than 1 hour after sunset.

So within the span of a couple of hours, you can photograph Downtown buildings reflecting Golden hour as the sun goes down behind your back … and then capture a full moon rising over downtown buildings!


We will meet at Eleanor Tinsley Park’s Nat Family Pavilion. Feel free to arrive early if you want to photograph downtown and the bayou before it starts getting dark. As the sun goes down behind your back, the orange “Golden Hour” will light up the downtown buildings while still maintaining a deep blue sky. You can use your wide-angle lens to capture iconic downtown Houston panos.

Then the moon will rise directly behind the downtown buildings at about 7:15pm. Using your telephoto lens, you can take pictures of a bright full moon hanging behind the backdrop of downtown buildings.

If you have an account with TPE (free), you can view the sun and moon transit for this day at the following link:



To keep us from having a bunch of photographers in our pictures, we will keep the group small, and limited to photographers only. We will stand on the hill next to the Nat Family Pavilion. If you want to get more pictures of the bayou or of the park, we will do that after everyone get’s their moon shots.


Allen Parkway now has a convenient area for parking to access Eleanor Tinsley Park. We no longer have to park near Sabine and walk the rest of the way. The easiest way to access the parking is to travel West on Allen Parkway, coming from downtown, and enter into the parking area to the right.


For wide shots of downtown, bring your wide angle lens. For large photographs of the full moon, bring your long zoom lens, and a teleconverter if you have one. For this shoot, a tripod is a must!

I also strongly suggest bringing wipe-on bug spray. Also, there very little covered area, so if there appears to be any rain in the forecast, bring your all-weather gear. This includes a cover for your camera gear and towel(s) for your person.
