This past weekend I have gone away to Tobyhanna, PA for little rest and relaxation.
Over the weekend the “Super Moon” was scheduled to appear during my weekend stay in Pennsylvania. So of course I took the opportunity to go photograph the moon. This particular moon rise was to have a view that seems closer to the Earth than other times in the past, hence the term “Super Moon.” As well due to the extreme brightness of this particular moon rise, you can nearly make out any of the lunar craters and you would normally see during a moon rise in the night sky.
Granted the peak time to view the event was at 11:30 p.m. that Saturday night, but I was subjected to heavy cloud cover in the night sky, and was forced to wait until the clouds passed by. That had taken about an hour for the cloud cover to pass. Plus as well it was slightly raining.
But it did all pass, and I was able to get in a few shots of a very bright moon in the night sky that lit up the sky for the night. Some of the photos were taken in color and in black in white. But it did make for some good, interesting photos.
Below are some of the photos that I have taken of the event.
It has been a while since I have taken photos of the moon, or have done any photography for that matter. But it did feel good to be back out once again doing what I enjoy, capturing a moment in time.
