Super Blue Moon

I don’t think I will be going anywhere at zero dark thirty to photograph the eclipse, so here is what I saw tonight.

Sunset Moon:

There were clouds on the horizon- plus it was still very light- so I couldn’t see the moon until it climbed just a bit into the sky.  As it got a little darker, I took the shots below:

And as I post this, the moon is high in the sky- and beautiful as always!


Neighborhood Super Moon

Love the super moons! Someday I need to leave my driveway and try another vantage point. Might be about time.


Super Duper

Last night I finally got outside to photograph the super moon. At first there was just a glow in the sky- and then the moon rose over the clouds, only to disappear and then reappear in the cloudy sky.

Goodnight, (Super) Moon

Tonight is the night for moon-gazing!

I didn’t have the time or energy to go anywhere special for a beautiful foreground- so these are our hills (blurred with intentional camera movement).
