After posting one or two images in which I've photoshopped the moon in, I'm feeling bold enough to share one on its own! This was the Super Blue Moon that I took earlier this evening. I didn't have any intention of capturing it, partly because I didn't even expect to see it. We've had four seasons in one day today in terms of weather but fortunately the sleet, rain and clouds stayed away when I was on my way home and the moon looked so beautiful that I just had to grab my camera and tripod to capture it! 😁 There was no Super Blue Blood Moon here but if I was in the Philippines I would have seen it...oh well! I used my trusty Sigma 70-300 for this image. πŸŒ•βœ¨πŸ’™ #nikon

By the way, I'll get round to answering all comments and messages as soon as I can! I was very pleased to read all the positive feedback in my previous image, thank you all in advance for your encouragement! πŸ’™πŸ’§πŸ’™


hogman72664 or david: Not a lot to say about a super blue moon other than it really is super but it isn't blue. Stunning anyway.😎

charmychelle: Haha I suppose that I could have turned it blue in my camera...perhaps if/when I decide to use it for another creative shot. πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‰ It’s chucking it down again now so I was very thankful for this opportunity of seeing and capturing it πŸ˜„ Thank you so much David, good night! xxx

andy-w: Nice shot charmy... Unfortunately I couldn't see it at all because of clouds and a bit of snow 🌨 πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

charmychelle: Thanks Andy, I didn’t expect to see it either as it had been cloudy, sometimes with rain for much of the day with some breaks in the clouds. However, when I was on my way home the wind had blown the clouds away so I could see the moon clearly. Fortunately it remained dry and clear for the next couple of hours and I had time to take a few shots before the next band of rain moved in. πŸ˜„πŸ‘

stroppirob: Superb shot Michelle πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ such amazing detail for a difficult subject to shoot. You should be proud of this one πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Š

charmychelle: Thanks Rob, yes, it’s particularly difficult when it’s a full moon as that’s when it’s at its brightest. I usually use a self-timer to try and minimize the camera shake and this shot came out without much blurring. Then it was the usual balancing of hdr/sharpness/contrast to finish off the look. πŸ˜„πŸ‘

charmychelle: Thanks Jerry, I’ve now had a bit of practice with moon photography and I think my editing has improved with each shot; I feel that this is the best one that I’ve done so far! πŸ˜„πŸ‘

charmychelle: Thank you, aww it’s a pity you didn’t capture it, we didn’t see the eclipse here so no red moon! Never mind, at least I could use it as a chance to further improve on my last attempt. πŸ˜„πŸ‘

jasu: Its also first blood moon...nice shot of blue moon....

Posted: 2018 Feb 2 9:42:06 AM

charmychelle: You’re right, it was also the first blood moon. But we didn’t see the eclipse here in UK therefore no red moon, so technically it was only a super blue moon for us. Those who got to see the red moon were very lucky! Thanks a lot! πŸ˜„πŸ‘
