Super Moon

So tonight we had a "Super Moon". It is the closest that the moon has been to the earth in 18 years.
The skys were a bit cloudy and I had to go out a couple of times to get my shots. But, it was worth it.
The moon was really bright and looked like it had a bright shining ring around it. I thought these would make good Shadow Shot Sunday pictures.

I played with the different settings on my camera and got some decent pictures.
When the clouds cleared, I was able to get a couple of close up shots, but in these you can't see the bright ring.
I hope you enjoy the pictures!!
And, that you head over to Hey Harriet to see the Shadow Shots others have posted this week.


  1. Terrific captures! Wow! I tried, but the clouds had rolled in again! I'll try in the morning, sometimes I have better luck when it's trying to go to bed!! Hope your weekend is going well!


  2. you lucky duck! we went out side to only find rain and heavy cloud hoo.
    Great shots!

  3. OMG!!!! amazing pictures :D... the moon indeed looked pretty and you have captured it so well.

    Shadow Shot Sunday

  4. Love 'em all. Especially the one with the clouds drifting, as always, when some great skywatch phenomenon happens, we get thick overcast cloudiness and impossible to view.

    Have a glorious Sunday!! Stop by to visit if you can find time. Your company is always welcomed.

  5. For me (and for many others), the moon is the hardest object to photograph. I think you've done a superb job!


    Of shadows an old man did sing;
    He chanted in Guelph and Beijing;
    The shade was his friend,
    He loved it no end—
    It made him feel rich as a king!

  6. Hi Jeanette, you did great! We never did get to see it because it was too cloudy. I sure wish that my photos from the night before were better, because it was really pretty then too.

    Thanks so much for stopping by to say hi, and have a wonderful week!


  7. Nice moon shots. As was the case with us west-coasters, the cloud cover was so thick that not even a lighting of the sky was apparent. Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

  8. You got some really nice shots of that huge, bright moon! A regular full moon disrupts my sleep...this one seemed brighter than ever!

  9. Beautiful shots of the "Super Moon". Mickie

  10. Gorgeous shadow shots!

    Hope you can visit my shadow shots even if it's late, thanks in advance!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
