04.07.2020 Setting Full Pink Supermoon

The exact full moon when it was at its most super was last night @10:30, but it was still livin’ large this morning as it set over the Connecticut River in Hadley, MA. It’s not very pink, is it?  The name actually comes from moss pink, a phlox that flowers in early spring. But it is just about to start disappearing behind a pink cloud.

This was with the Tamron 100-400 and I was surprised that it grabbed a sharper moon than the Canon 70-200.  That said, it still required some Photoshop and Topaz magic to be processed to its best.

A question has arisen about the size of the image when clicking to it’s own page.  There is a small box in the lower right that allows you to click for full size.  The file name and other lower bits disappear when you do that so only the image is there.

      For anyone like me with a smaller screen (I have a laptop), you might only see the photo title and comment/reblog buttons and nothing more. If you scroll down e.g. by using the mouse-wheel, you find there’s more under the comment/reblog buttons. All cleared up after Steve and I exchanged some screen-shots!

    That is a beautiful photo, Steve. Fabulous moon (even if it isn’t pink).
    Oh, and another way to view the pic without the gubbins below it is to right click on the pic then click again.


  5. The reflection really makes this picture.

  6. Love it! So glad you had excellent conditions. I was disappointed that we’ve had clouds for three days, so no moon…I was able to enjoy it vicariously through your image. Nicely done. The warm moon and the cool lake is just perfect. Thanks for posting.

    • Thanks, Bob. More often than not I am on the same side of things as your experience this time around. My joke is the same as Linda’s the other day. The cloud Nazi says “No moon for you”. Glad that you enjoyed it.


    • BTW. I did a quick search to see if you had a website and gallery. The first hit said you were dead. 🙂 But I read further and that was the Beatles’ photographer. Didn’t really see one that reminded me of what I see in your blog but maybe this wasn’t your professional work?

  9. Wow, Steve, this is a stunner! The moon almost looks like it is being held in place by a wisp of cloud 🙂 Great reflection and moody colours.

    • You are pretty close to it, Pete. Slowly the moon disappeared behind horizon hugging clouds. Once the moon became more hidden the cloud turned blue in the Belt of Venus and eventually the moon was gone. So this, with just a hint of cloud, was the last frame I processed. Thanks!

    This is indeed stunning, and hooray for you to go out and capture it. At some point when I was letting Pete outside I looked up and saw the moon but it didn’t have any color to it.

  11. Beautiful location and composition! The reflection adds something new to the scene compared to a lot of other full moon shots I am seeing today.

    • Thanks, Denise. I’ve made plenty of those in your face moon portraits too. I wanted to shoot it again last night but it would have been just a big old moon in the center of the frame so didn’t bother. If I could photograph it through a telescope and see Neil Armstrong’s footprints then maybe. 🙂

    Oh, sweet shot, Steve. I love seeing the moon reflected on water.

    Beautiful work, Steve, and the little snippets of cloud are a bonus. I was wondering where pink moon came from – thank you. 🙂
