Super Harvest Moon

Today’s post features the “Super Harvest Moon” as it arose over the Lake of the Ozarks (MO) last night.

I was aware of this event, but was not planning on getting out and shooting it. After dinner, I walked past my front door and saw this beautiful moon, quite large-looking and with a nice, orange color. So I grabbed my camera and tripod and set up just outside my front door and captured several images of this wonderful sight. To achieve the best possible image, I combined a couple of images to get this resulting Super Harvest Moon:

Had I realized it would be so clear and visible, I would have tried to find a more scenic location to shoot!
