Saturday's Super Moon

I have to say I was hoping the moon would have been larger .. closer ? .. but I think the super part was how BRIGHT it developed to ..
The start was amazing because it was rising right across from our back garden behind our neighbor's house .. it was almost theatrical !
It was a beautiful deep yellow at first and then the super part kicked in and it was so bright that definition in the picture was almost hidden as it shone ..
On with the show and a bit of my own theatrical ? touches ? .. OK "artsy fartsy" bit ... as you will see !


This is the BRIGHT event ...




Artsy Fartsy bit ? ........

Great shots Joy. I have to confess too that I thought from all of the hype that it was going to be really close and big. I was disappointed. LOL! It was brighter. It looked bigger last night to me than the first night here anyway but it got clouded over before I got time to get a picture.
By the way that email was so cute!

of course you made it out to see this! Great job with the photos, what a sight. We missed it completely as Saturday was a bit of a mess but I woke up at 2am Saturday night to a very bright bedroom. I think it was smaller by that point it sure was bright.

I like your artsy look at the moon. I just got to see it this morning due to clouds.

Hello Lona girl !
Thank you : ) yes .. I was hoping for a huge close moon but the hype was more about how bright it got ?
Hope for one super harvest moon in the Autumn girl ? LOL

Hello Marguerite girl : )
Yes you were so busy and that poor cat .. heaven knows how it got that mess on itself .. I remember waking up as a kid seeing moon glow that was amazing .. then again everything amazed us as kids eh ? LOL

Hello Nadezda and yes ! the moon is a mystery isn't it ? so cold yet inviting at the same time .. I find it so fascinating !

I love your shots, and I knew that someone would come through with moon shots for me....

No matter that it wasn't bigger, it still looks stunning in your shots.

Great shots, Joy! Can you believe I missed the whole thing? We ended up going to the Greek Islands for a later than usual supper that night, and I'd completely forgotten about the moon. After supper, we took a long walk because it was such a nice night and that's when I remembered! But it was too late. I'm settling on seeing it through other people's photos, like yours! Oh well...

Hello Darla girl !
yes .. emphasis on the "fartsy"? LOL
Your work table looks so neat and tidy and your tiles are beautiful !!!
Your daughter's project is too cute as well .. she has her mom's talent for sure ! : )

Jen girl thank you : )
I am still struggling with the new camera .. I have to settle down and read the manual and try some different settings .. I am way too lazy and rely on my darling Olympus too much ! LOL

Martha girl it sounds like you had a lovely night : ) and had a great meal to boot ! LOL
I am still trying to rest and keep the pain at bay but I so need to get out to the other parts of the garden and get them tucked in right for the season !!!
Our "work" is never done right ?? LOL

It was so beautiful! I was thinking same thing though. I thought the moon a couple months ago was larger. I missed pictures of it though. I was so mad I didn't take my camera to work that day. This moon was really pretty though and the color was fantastic.

Cindee girl it wasn't what I expected either .. but I did manage to get some pictures of it : )
