Here is my take on the largest full moon since 1948, and the largest full moon for 18 more years…

dsc_6740-2
The “Super Moon,” as seen rising over Trousdell Aquatic Center, Monday, November 14, 2016. Captured with a Nikon D7100, 300mm F/4 PF + TC17EII, cropped in Adobe Lightroom, and then compressed and sharpened during export

It’s no great work of art for sure…BUT. You do what you can with what you have; that includes equipment, time, and imagination. This was stretching my equipment to the max. Not only was I using the lens/camera combination that would get me “closest” to the moon, I was cropping in on a high-resolution body too.

And it’s for sure not even technically the greatest image. Little fuzzy…eh.

Life goes on.

I’m just glad that I got to get a picture of it, after a cloudy evening last night and then a cloudy start this morning.

Regardless, it was awesome to get to watch it FLY up from the horizon and tree line at the end of swim practice, and share in the awe of the with the kids I coach.
