So last month was like the brightest supermoon in like 60 some years. I had known about it like a week in advance. I was trying to do a little research on the best settings for my camera to shoot this magnificent event. I had an event of my own which made me miss the one of the 3 nights that the moon was going to be super bright and huge. I was sad. So, I attempted the second night. I got my camera out, put on my 50-200mm 4-5.6G lens (because that’s my only telephoto lens) and set my camera to what I thought I needed to get this great shot of the SUPERMOON!
I was so sad when they didn’t turn out. I kept seeing all these wonderful photos that people posted in groups I belonged to of the supermoon.
Then the other day I was doing a little Bing searching and saw that there was going to be another supermoon that night. Hot dog! I can finally get this right. Hopefully.
This time I made sure I did more research on the subject and waited until the moon was close to the horizon.
I sat waiting for the moon to rise and finally, at around 6:15 p.m. I finally got to see the last supermoon of 2016. It was amazing. SO AMAZING.
I ran and got my camera locked and loaded and headed back outside in the frigid temperatures (because it was like – something degrees out that night) and shot the beautiful supermoon.
The bottom picture here looks like there may be some graininess to the night sky but I’d like to think that they’re stars. 🙂
Anyway, I had fun shooting this, despite the frigid temperatures.
