Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

Supermoon No. 2


I had waited about 20 minutes past the actual time of moonrise for it to rise high enough to become visible through distant clouds.  Then there was no time to rest as the sky darkened, and the moon brightened.   The image above is the result of a bracketed set of 5 exposures run through Photomatix.   This is the best it could do with the rapidly expanding dynamic range of the scene- at least with what I gave the program to work with.   I thought this had a rather atmospheric mood,  although it is beginning to creep into the realm of the surreal.   Alright, I confess it was this one that made my wife go “oooooh , That one!” when she saw it, so I figured I better post it.

    I see why your wife had that reaction – this is simply a great shot. Well worth the wait. I keep telling myself to try some HDR software, but so far I have not. This might be the kick in the butt I need!

    That is one gorgeous photo! It is the best I have seem on the web.

    Here in WI we had overcast skyes and hence no opportunity to attempt a photo.
