Super Moon

On the evening of March 19, 2011, the moon was not only full, it was as close to the Earth as is has been in eighteen years. I set up my tripod and got my camera and 600mm lens ready and waited. Moonrise was later than I thought, it had to come up over Cold Mountain for me to see it, and there was a lot of clouds moving through the area.

Here's the link to my gallery of 13 shots I made of the "Super Moon".

I hope you enjoy them and will leave comments with your reactions either in the gallery or here on the blog. Thanks for stopping by and viewing my work.


  1. Seems like a nice shot and a nature´s touch Chip!

  2. Oh moon so high and gleaming bright
    Lighting the dark recesses of night

    Glowing liquid silver swath
    Clear luminescence marks my path

    Leading me through a dark winter wood

    To the sacred place where my ancestors stood

    Singing your praises, arms raised high

    While stately and graceful the stars roll by

  3. Debra and Mattias,
