Super Moon

Were you able to see the Super Moon in your area?  The clouds cooperated and cleared up so I could photograph it.  This photo has been cropped and sharpened but other than that, it's straight out of the camera.  I used my 75-300mm lens on a tripod {aperture 8.0, shutter speed 1/500 and ISO 800} and just about froze out on the porch.  Brrr!!  But it was worth it.


  1. OMG..OMG...OMG...this is the best picture of a moon that I have ever seen outside of NASA...beautiful Lynda..I'm so glad you braved the cold to capture this photo...amazing and it's..all YOURS! true to life...
    (Who just loves the moon)

  2. I'll say! It's gorgeous. Thank you for sharing it because I've been looking for the really good ones.

  3. Excellent Lynda! No I didn't see it very much due to clouds. My goal was to photograph it as it was rising. When that didn't happen I didn't bother. You got a great shot though!

  4. Hi Lynda. Did you take this photo? OMG it is gorgeous.

    Yes, we had a super clear evening and I could see the man in the moon. I was thinking about you and wanted to stop by and see what gorgeousness you were up to. I took out my book on Inspiration Boards and was browsing.

    I hope that you have a lovely evening.


  5. WOW...such a beautiful shot you got! It looks like it could be taken by NASA! Incredible!

  6. Hi Lynda, wow, what a shot!!!!!!!

    Yes, we had a clear night! We were all so excited to watch the moon rise and see it cross the sky.

    I didn't even attempt to take any photos, though, so I'm really pleased and impressed that you got this one. Bravo!

    (busy day, will answer emails tmrw) xo – g

  10. That is absolutely striking!
    It is almost as if you took a rocket ship up into the starry sky and took a picture up close!
