I did make a few more images with the Full Buck Moon of July. I had this idea that highlighting the moon and Quabbin Tower would make for an interesting picture. The Photographers Ephemeris got me to the right place at the right time, or so I believed. Turns out it isn’t 100% all the time. The moon rose over Quabbin Hill a half hour later than predicted and off by several degrees in the azimuth. I had thought it would rise behind or close to the tower according to TPE. I’ll try again another time and possibly from a different position along the shore.
Missed it by this much. It was a lovely moon though so I gave it a solo shot. I did not try to fill a frame as the net will be loaded with full frame shots done with longer lenses for better detail. I think I prefer the wider (or in this case-taller) view anyway.Yesterday morning I thought it would be a good idea to frame the moon with the Quabbin Tower more up close. And hence the post’s title.Our next scheduled Super Moon is in August and should be even larger according to reports I’ve read. I am looking forward to working with a super model.
