The super moon, wavy hair, and a star

From all ages, with all degrees of skill set in photography, with all manner of equipment and some with pretty amazing locations to shoot from were out last night to capture this moment in time – the super moon.  Super not because it wore a cape (we also went to see The Avengers yesterday – AWESOME MOVIE) but because it was so very bright and so very close to the earth.  When I remembered this was the night for it I jumped up from my comfy seat on the couch and poked my head out the back door to see if it could be seen.  Yesterday morning was a foggy mess and it was drizzly a lot of the day;  I wasn’t sure if would clear up enough  but there it was,  wonderfully clear.  Another good thing was this time it wasn’t freezing when I took my photos unlike my last time.  It was a nice comfortable 62.

I had forgotten the settings that worked so wonderfully with the last moon shots so this photo here is my first attempts at fiddling around with settings until I ran back in and pulled up the shots and settings from before and then back out I went to get more detailed shots.  Even though this is not a clear shot with all of the moons darks and lights and textures, I liked the way this one turned out anyway.  Doesn’t it look like the moon let down her wavy hair the way the clouds were drifting past?   Stay on the path and keep your garlic handy 😉

F 5.6,  ISO 3200,  1/10,  100mm

    Very cool photo…I will have to try again tonight. The cloud cover moved in last night and it is still overcast. Hoping it will clear up!

    You picked a great night for shooting the moon. Last night was the “Super Moon”, the largest full moon of the year. Neat, huh?

  5. I was like “where’s the star? Oh there is it” Hahah. Nice photo tho. :]

  6. My best photo of the moon shows a small orange dot in a sea of black. Thanks for showing me what I missed!
