Full moon shots are generally more interesting combined with landscapes, cityscapes, waterscapes or landmarks to show perspective. Low clouds rolled in at the last minute obscuring the rising super moon at my location preventing the waterscape reflection shot I was set up for.

This lunar perigee image was captured using a Canon dSLR and 700mm of glass as song dogs howled and bass splashed. Really Right Stuff ball head and carbon fiber tripod provided a stable platform for the heavy setup.

Tight lines,

Blue Moon

Thanks for your comments. They're always appreciated.

This was a fun snapshot that shows my wildlife rig pointing at the moon last night. Check out the camera back to see how I use LiveView to focus and manually adjust the shutter, aperture and ISO settings.



Below is a shot from the 15th, a day after the super moon shot in the first post. The moon was still nearly full at 99 percent illumination and still under 222,000 miles away, a tad closer than it normally is at perigee. For a kindergarten refresher, every 27 days the moon makes and elliptical orbit around earth. It ranges between 225,000 miles when it’s close at perigee, to 252,000 miles away at apogee. When a full moon coincides during lunar perigee it's considered a Super Moon.



Tight lines,

Blue Moon
