Supermoon

- Tonight was the perigee or "supermoon"--the biggest in 18 years. I went to Sandbridge in Virginia Beach to capture the moon rising in the east over the Atlantic Ocean. Canon 7D, 1/30 sec @ f/16, ISO 100, mounted on a tripod.

Much nicer than I was able to capture, David. We had mostly cloud cover here.

Thanks for doing this David, we had thunderstorms and missed out entirely. Beautiful!!

Thanks for the comments. I posted this composite image on another blog. Since I'm a Canon shooter I couldn't use Cait's in-camera double exposure technique, I had to use Photoshop.
