A Super Moon welcomed in the new year, 2018. In spite of the cold, or because of the cold, I layered up x4 and headed out to capture the sight. Cloudless night, although a little hazy. Temps hovering between -1 and -3. I headed up the hill at Meacham Grove Forest Preserve, and spent about 45 minutes taking various shots with and without the surrounding landscape. Wasn't happy with the landscape ones, but managed to salvage a solo shot, which I am sharing here.
Details: Moonrise at 4:29 pm CST, Sunset at 4:32 pm CST, Full Moon 8:24 pm. About the closest I have seen between moonrise and sunset as well as the timing of moonrise vs full moon.
Next Supermoon: January 31. Looking for more interesting location. Any ideas? Let me know.
Details: Canon 5D Mark II. Tamron 28-300 Lens with 2X Extender. Manual focus. 1/25 second at f/6.3. ISO 200. Corded remote trigger with dead batteries. Post-process in Light Room, with shake-reduction filter in PhotoShop.
