This past weekend was the first of three Super Moons we’ll be blessed with this summer. I had every intention of staying up late enough to get some great shots of the cool moon from my backyard, but it got late and I had an early alarm Sunday morning.
Best intentions and all that jazz.
The only shot I managed to get on a whim with my phone was of the dark sky patiently waiting for the moon to rise above the horizon and trees:
Super Moon FAIL on my part. Ahem.
Luckily there will be an even more impressive one on August 10th – you can bet I’ll be stalking the moon from my backyard regardless of time and/or alarm status. We should be lucky enough to not have cloudy or rainy weather, since August is typically clear here in the Pacific Northwest. (fingers crossed)
Perusing the local and international news and photo submissions, I ran across a submission from a very patient man named Tim Durkan, who stalked the moon and got the most amazing shot in line with the Space Needle:
Isn’t that one of the most amazing shots? If you click on the image, you can see a couple more cool ones Tim Durkan took – I’m going to keep an eye out to see what awesome shots he’ll get with the next two Super Moons in August and September.
Hopefully I’ll get a decent shot over the trees in our backyard next month. Wish me luck!
Did you stay up late (or get up early) to see the Super Moon?
