Doesn’t that sound much better than “SUPERMOON”! Kind of like NFL Championship sounds so much more sane than “Super Bowl”. Anyway, I am not a fisher person , 🙂 so the significance is just in the name for me.
Last month I made a few mistakes in my use of The Photographer’s Ephemeris which caused me to miss my target……the Quabbin Tower as seen from the end of Old Enfield Road, Gate 5 in Belchertown, in silhouette with the full moon. Yesterday I did a little better. Still not the silhouette I visualized, but it would have been pretty difficult for me to reach the spot needed. Maybe another time things will line up better, but I am pretty happy with these.
When I arrived, there were clouds along the hill top and I was worried they would not recede in time. But they did and the moon rose splendidly just to the left of the tower.A little wander down shore and a short time to rise gave me this second with the nice deep blue of the night sky.
I had hoped to be able to add a shot from this morning, but there was only a glimpse before the fog rose from the ground and hid all. We are possibly receiving some showers this evening, so whether the weather allows for more later is up in the air.
