“Everything has a natural explanation. The moon is not a god, but a great rock, and the sun a hot rock.” Anaxagoras
Almost everyone I spoke to last week was planning on doing a bit of star-gazing on Saturday evening – whether they owned a camera or not. Unless you were living under a rock, you will have invariably been aware that Saturday brought us a Perigee or super-moon for the first time in 20 years.
My own family members were hanging out the window trying to get a better glimpse of the moon on Saturday when I called for a chat.
Other people I spoke to, used the occurrence in all seriousness to explain away everything from their mood swings to the political climate! I decided to get in on the act, and took my own memento of the lunar happenings – presented here for your viewing pleasure… see you again in 20 years!
Actually, I hope to see you sooner than that for my new theme that starts later this week 😉
Martina, I have to honestly say this is perhaps THE best moon photo I have seen, I just LOVE it!
This is absolutely stunning. It should be framed and hung on the wall.
this is the best moonphotograph that I see. the composition is so wonderful and creative, that it could be used for a cover. almost like a painting. Congratulations!
really nice image. bravissima
wonderful and romantic back-moon-light
this is awesome…
OH HOW FABULOUS!!! You got such an incredible shot!
I missed it! 🙂 But I can live vicariously through your super moon.
Martina, Very nice photo of the “big” moon. I’m glad some got to see and photograph it…cloudy here. 🙁
So delicately composed! I love the slightness of drifting clouds and the crisp silhouette on the horizon. And I just love your little logo and your choice of placement – makes me happy!
Wonderful composition and tones!
Tant pis pour l’originalité mais… ta composition est superbe. Vraiment.
Wow. What a stunning full moon.
I’m looking forward for your new theme 😉
Your star-gazing session has been truly successful. The resulting photograph is a masterpiece – aesthetically and technically! Kudos to you!
Perfect! Love the sense of scale…the moon looks huge!
superbe composition, le noir et blanc lui va bien.
I’ve seen hundreds of Super Moon Photos this past week, by far this one impresses me the most. I love how you’ve captured the cityscape in your photo but still giving the moon a nice focal point. Most of the photos have been very isolated of just the moon, it seems people lost their creativity and took only photos of the moon! Great job
well the moon was quite huge that night
This almost makes me want to howl 😉
I didn’t get to go out and do some moon spotting this time around. I did 20 years ago and that one was very red. Top moon photo.
