Super Moon


The “super moon” of this evening appears 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal. I got this shot just about at its max at 8:30 pm. The super moon is the name given to the moon when it is full and it is closest in its orbit to the Earth (perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system). The term, super moon was coined in 1979.

Canon 40D + Canon 300 L f/4 + Canon 1.4 extender + tripod + remote + a bit of LR adjustment and Color Efex 4 to increase details. Manual exposure f/22, 1/80, ISO 200.
