Supermoon,  August 10, 2014

Sometimes you can't go anywhere special to take a photograph. Sometimes the subject comes to you. Or is everywhere (almost). Barring cloudy skies, the supermoon was there for us all. And it almost didn't matter where you were to photograph it, because as long as you could get it in your viewfinder, the foreground was almost irrelevant. I wanted in this case, though, to include the soft pinky clouds that were under it as it rose, as well as the trees, giving some context to where I was when I took it. Anyone can take a photograph of the moon, many with far longer lenses than I. But only I took it from the field behind our house and the trees make this unique to me. I was pleased with the details in the moon, as well.

This supermoon was the closest to the earth this year, at its apogee, so looked the largest.
