Night Light

1/100 sec. f/9 ISO 100

I'm at the point where I'm bored with moon photos. Unless I can include another element in the shot, the photos all look the same. I almost didn't even photograph the "supermoon" the other night, but decided to take a few shots, anyway. This may be the last moon photo I post for a while unless I can get a more interesting scene.

The awesome wonder of the universe is hard to resist-

Magnificent shot and subject Brian!

Roan said...

It was too cloudy for the super moon here. Nice shot!

Andy said...

So you are finally giving up mooning people. (:-0) It's a great shot but I do agree with you that it needs something else in the photo.

Great picture !

Jan n Jer said...

I missed my window of opportunity for the super moon. This is an awesome shot! But I hear you on all the moon pics looking the same.

TexWisGirl said...

i watched it rise, said 'hello', but didn't take a shot. yours is really, really nice, though!

It was cloudy here so I wasn't able to shoot, your shot is awesome so i'll just enjoy yours for now :) Have a great weekend!

Sally in WA said...

Still an excellent shot, Brian. I've given up on nighttime photography for awhile. Too frustrating for me!

Terri said...

It's a beautiful shot- but I do know how you feel. I'd love to get the moon reflecting off the lake, or over a mountain top!

Debbie said...

i am so glad i didn't share mine ;)

it's beautiful brian!!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

An awesome shot but I agree it's nice to have something else of interest with it.

ladyfi said...

Simply stunning!

Brian, you got an awesome shot of the super moon! Have a happy weekend!

Lindsjö taxar said...

I love it!

From The Heart said...

I think this is great!

Pamela Gordon said...

It's fantastic. I can see all the craters so clearly. Have a great weekend!

It's a good one!

Nicki said...

This is a great shot. I know exactly how you feel - were it not for my son who wanted to go out and take pictures I would have passed this last time.

Sharon said...

Don't ever be bored or ashamed of something so magnificent as the moon. Maybe others have taken similar shots, nevertheless it is still the amazing handiwork of the Amazing Creator God! Beautiful rendition!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Agree, Brian. They start to all look the same. This one is a real beauty, though! Spectacular detail.

Margaret Gosden said...

Always like to look at a good moon shot, and this is the super moon after all. You never know when you might pick up some unusual event on the moon and that is what I look for....

Marie said...

I never tire of moon photos, either. I understand what you are saying, but I have a love affair going with the moon, and the three nights the supermoon coincided with the solstice and then swelled to moon perfection delighted me. And you have captured it so wonderfully!

TheChieftess said...

I dunno...this is a pretty awesome shot!!! The clarity and detail is stunning!!!

Leenie said...

But you did an excellent job. I can almost see the lunar rover!

You've got some spots I've never seen in moon shots before. So clear compared to so many other shots of the moon. Glad you posted. enJOYed it.

Tricia Hays said...

but it sure is an awesome moon shot, very clear! i don't have a lens to shoot the moon, anymore, since my good camera was stolen last year... i miss the lens very, very much! =0

barbara l. hale said...

That's a really good moon shot, but I hear what you are saying. I want someone to find someone running around up there or something.

Tanya Breese said...

wow, that is an amazing shot, so much detail...mine just looked like a big white circle...i understand though about wanting something else...there was nothing near me to add to to it but i have seen lots of gorgeous photos where they've added another element in the shot!

Faye said...

I agree, Brian--just one more golden globe in a dark sky is not very interesting even if you're able to pick up some detail on the moon. Even some night clouds or tree branches add some interest. I did like the pics of the supermoon where there was another point of interest--statue, bridge, building--in the composition.

Valerie said...

This is a marvellous capture Brian (despite your reservations!) - such fabulous detail. Thanks for sharing it.

Liz said...

I felt the same, but I shot it anyway (and posted it on IG).
I suppose I need to look at the moon differently... after all it's quite an incredible part of creation.
