Super Moon

Tonight I headed out to see if I could catch the "Super Moon" rising over the bay. The app for the iPhone, Photographer's Ephemeris, pinpointed the moon rising exactly across from Rocky Point State park at 7:47pm. Hart Miller Island lay on the horizon in front of us giving us a bit of forest on the horizon. The moon travels very fast...and it is really hard to get a sharp shot without pumping up the ISO, and since my sensor is a bit does not have great ISO capabilities..but I was there and made some shots, as the moon rose big and red in the Eastern sky. We stayed until it turned golden and then silver and it was too dark to shoot anymore. I used Sanpart2 on these to give them a painterly look and mask the noise in the photo image, and because I enjoy seeing images this way.
