Saturday night the meteorologist said there was going
to be a supermoon! Something like 14% closer than usual
and at its zenith.
So I ran into the front yard and took some pictures.
I’m not a good photographer- but if you take enough pictures…
you can get some decent shots. I loved the quietness of my neighbourhood at midnight,
and the cold clear shots of the moon- although there were considerable clouds drifting by.
I used a telescopic lens that I had forgotten I had for these last two shots. I could hardly
hold the camera still with the extension and the extra weight.
But the clouds added atmosphere (hah) and I’m quite happy that
I even got a recognizable moon. Usually I just get a white globular
looking white spot in the middle of a black background.
So- did you see the moon on Saturday night?
Hi Heidi, Beautiful shots of the moon. I think you did a beautiful job. It was a beautiful evening. I watched it come up it started out red turned orange, then yellow. Thank you for sharing your photos.
Why, thank you, Cynthia! I really can never get a good picture of the moon. This was a special moon on a very fortunate night!
Excellent shots! I did see the moon. It made me think of you and Aunt Robin, who sang the “I See the Moon” song to me when I was little. 🙂
I love being associated with the moon in your memories, Elizabeth! Thanks for sharing that.
It was huge here as well! 🙂
I’m sure it was, Celia- somehow just knowing you has made the world a homier, more friendly place. It’s nice to have you as a distant neighbour!
Our Supermoon hid behind the clouds and I thought I had missed it but then I caught a glimpse of it all golden and hazy through the branches of my neighbour’s garden. My cousin Ann in Stockholm posted a pic of it from the terrace of her new flat on Facebook too. I think you are very good getting the camera kit out, great shots ! xx
I can NEVER take good night pictures, but that is because I am not very confident or skilled with photography- it is mostly hit or miss with me.
I really enjoyed taking these photos, though!
It was a SUPER moon wasn’t it. The boys were so excited to show me it. “Look mama! It’s a super moon!!! Clearly linked to a super hero in their minds.
I took some photos too but didn’t do it justice. I needed to be near the water to watch it birth itself from the sea. Now those would have been good pics.
You are right about the water! i would have loved to see that reflection although I am really a bad photographer.
