10 Sep 14. Tuesday evening was the last of the three super moons of 2014. If my memory serves me correctly, it's been four years ago since I last tried to shoot one of these even though they occur regularly. Oddly, they never seem to be as impressive as all the hype would lead me to believe. The last time there was a bit more scenery to accompany the moon than I had today, but in each case the moon didn't seem to me to be anything super. Either I'm asking too much, or I'm just not picking the best location and/or time (month) to shoot it. This time around I commandeered a spot in a neighbor's yard that over looks Puget Sound facing the Cascades. When I arose this morning the sky was totally gray and looked as thought it was gonna be a lost cause for moon shooting, but by mid afternoon we were looking at patchy white clouds and blue sky. Then, as evening approached, it all seemed to go away once again. However, I figured I had nothing to loose by trying and the short trip of three blocks south provided for a lovely open sky with pinkish gray clouds that settled out as a mostly black sky by the time the moon made its appearance. Not having anything "background" wise to show off the moon, I elected to settle for a black shot with the only real color being that of the moon and its reflection on the water's surface. So, between Monday's colorful shot of a slightly smaller moon, and today's dark shot of the "super" moon, I think I greatly prefer what I shared on Monday. You may feel differently.
