A Different Look at the Moon - Photography Contest.

(Best use of Filter or Special Effects)

As an entry into the November Contest, hosted by Dick Greenberg , I just had to take advantage of the Super Moon on November 14th.  As the moon makes its elliptical orbit, the moon is the closest its been to the Earth since January 26, 1948, If you are interested in how close, it was only 221,526 miles away from the center of the Earth. (Just a little over a stones "Moon Rocks" throw away!) The moon appears bigger an brighter during a Super Moon, so I made sure I had my camera ready.

The next Super moon will be on November 25, 2034 and the closest of the Century will be December 6, 2052.

I took a photo of the moon without any filters and then used 2 other filters, while the moon was near the horizon, as the thick clouds were moving in fast. The clarity would have been better, if I could have waited until it was high in the sky, but the clouds covered my shot during that time.

I watched the moon for about 10 minutes and it changed from a red moon to an incredibly bright crater moon. I wish I could have watched it longer.

Nice work on your pictures, Larry. I like taking moon pictures, too, but I didn't get any of the last super moon.

Good morning Larry.  My wife and I tried to take photos of the moon a few days ago. Sadly they all didn't turn out.

Great photos, Larry Johnston . I recently saw one posted by our one and only, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin that had me rolling with laughter. Perhaps she will grace us with posting it here in the Rain?
