Super Moon Over Pittsburgh

No Cow Jumping Over

What a moon! Big and bright.
Illuminate limitations of photography.
Capture an enormous sky, city light, moonlight.
Being there and looking at a photo later/
what I experienced earlier are so different.
Just hard to capture huge super moon tonight.
But lots of fun trying.

Steve went with me to Mt. Washington and what a crowd of photographers set up with their fancy equipment and tripods when we arrived. I have a nice camera but I can’t imagine what some of that equipment cost!

I wish I had asked Keith or Andy some tips on how to shoot the city light and super moon light simultaneously and get a good effect.  I thought it was hard.  And that Spring weather was 40ish but felt like a freeze with the wind from the river.  I shot primarily with the 70-200mm lens.  Wished I knew more about how to get the city and moon at the same time but there wasn’t anything you could do about the positioning of the moon in relation to the buildings. Duh.   Oh it was so bright!

  1. You captured it well for those who did not stop to see it! Got my wallet on the window sill waiting to be filled!

  2. I saw it here in Indiana, too, and it was spectacular! Those shots you took are beautiful! I think the news guys said it would be 18 years until another moon like this happens.

  3. We saw it from our mountain and tried to get a decent shot….yours are great! I agree with the “super moon super city” comment. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
