If you’re in Australia you will have heard about the Super moon. I’m sure it’s probably been talked about elsewhere too.  I am fortunate in that the state and area I live in had a very clear weekend and both Saturday and Sunday night were perfect conditions for taking photos of a full moon – a very large looking full moon.  I also went out on Monday morning to get more shots. There had been a lot in the media about the moon, and excitement amongst a lot of photographers, amateurs, hobbyists and the professionals.  I was definitely in that group and have never really succeeded in taking decent shots of the moon before, so was unsure how I would go.

I’m hooked now and would love to get a telescope connected to my camera. Perhaps taking photos of the constellations would be a cool thing to do!  Anyway, here’s a small number of the shots I took over the weekend and Monday morning.  Hope you like them!

The first was Saturday night.  I was getting into practice.

Then out Sunday evening as it was just rising. There was a small amount of cloud on the horizon.

And a bit higher

I also got some similar shots later Sunday night that were similar to the Saturday night one so won’t add one of those here.

And then Monday morning
