The 2013 Super Moon illuminates the clouds as it rises behind them.

Here is a photo from about one hour after moonrise last night. I like the mystical quality the Super Moon created by illuminating the clouds beneath it as it passed behind the clouds in front of it. If you didn’t see it, the first image I posted today is here.

This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 150-500 mm lens, 1/.3 sec at f/11, ISO 200 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card

  1. I like both of today’s moon photos but especially this one . . . of course you know how I love clouds! The sliver of moon and gradations of blue in the clouds are beautiful and ethereal. Very dramatic.
