From Super Moon to Spooky Moon

My previous post featured the last Super Moon of 2019, as it rose above a lakeside home at the Lake of the Ozarks (MO).  As I mentioned in that post, the day was cloudy and rainy until a short time before moonrise, when the sky cleared. But after the moon rose higher in the sky, clouds began to move across the face of the moon, creating a spooky scenario.

The Super Moon before the clouds invaded:

Once the clouds began to appear, a spectacular night show began:

These are all good examples of what I “preach” whenever I’m teaching a landscape or astrophotography class … that “once the activity appears to be over, hang around for a little longer to see if something else develops”.  Sure will miss the Super Moons … until they again visit us in 2020!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon 500mm, f/4 IS lens, with IS “Off” (and a 1.4x TC used on the last photos)
