The Way I See It

Super Moon Rise

Super Full Moon

Tonight, the moon was the closest it’s been to Earth in 18 years. Dubbed “super full moon” by scientists and journalists alike, I was intrigued and wanted to see how much larger and brighter it would appear. Stationed myself by the water in West Seattle and got this image as it rose above the port. It was a good night to be out.

    • Thanks, Anil! I lucked out…for this time of year, I knew it was going to rise south of downtown…just wasn’t quite sure how far.

  4. I’m jealous. I’m in Berkeley and the only thing I got when I went out for my moon shot was a wet lens.

    Beautiful capture and compelling composition.

    • Thanks, Keith! Up here in the NW, we got lucky with the weather. This image was from a single exposure, RAW file processed twice in CNX (one to retain details in the moon), the manually blended.

  5. yes, as Anil says “great juxtaposition” of natural- and man-made light. Nice to see the Super Moon in a setting.
