Don’t put all your moons in one basket!

Super moon fever gripped photographers across the world recently. I too was a victim of its clutches, scouting for a location for two days. It was something like 18,000 miles closer than normal. 14% larger to the naked eye! The southwestern US was one of the prime locations to view it according to weather forecasts! Other photographers I talked with, the sales clerks at B & C photo, here in Las Vegas, were all a buzz. One word describes the super moon here, dud. Supermoon dud-1398
This was the best I could come up with from Red Rock Canyon. An interesting sky for sure, but even when the moon cleared the clouds it was hazy.   The sunset was phenomenal and many people got some great shots waiting for it.  I’ve read scores of articles about planning photo shoots.  Waiting for the perfect time and conditions.  Some wait months or years to get that perfect shot.  I’ve said there’s always something to shoot and stay versatile.   It’s good advice for me anyways.

Here’s to the “SuperMoon Sunset.”Supermoon sunset II-1382
