This was the full moon in November several years ago. (Digging into archives as it’s been very cloudy here lately.) I had shot it as it cleared the hill and was about to pack up when it began drifting into these light clouds. I got several as it moved through the thin band and then back into clear skies.

All comments welcome!
Is this a composite: No
Canon 1DX2, Canon 600mm + 1.4X, ISO 1600, f/9, 1/200 sec. Minimal adjustments in LR and to PS for NR and TK masks to bring out a tiny bit more detail in the landscape and clouds. Sky color tweak. No cropping.
Wow. Notice my dearth of moon images this week. Just have never done a good job and with yours up here already, I will not show any. Clearly they would not be up to par. Whatever you did to get that misty bit is a wonder to behold.
Thanks @David_Bostock, @Adhika_Lie, @Kris_Smith and @Dan_Kearl. Over the next 6 minutes I got a few more as the moon crawled its way above that thin cloud, which I hadn’t even seen before in the twilight sky. Here are a few, just processed raws. I’ll work some up in PS with TK masks and other tweaks as I have time.
All in all I shot 60 frames from the time the moon first peeked over the hill. Then I went home (this was from a spot about half an hour away) and got a very clean full moon higher in the sky. The air was good that night – sometimes a rising moon is trashed by dirty turbulent air.
