* What a Difference a Day makes ...or, Super-Moon plus 1 Day. September 17 2014

   All enthused after successfully capturing the Super-Moon, I backed up for another shot at it, the next night. Now, the Moon loses an hour a night, & also changes it's point of ascension. I'd found an exciting shooting-position as I'd walked out the previous night. So...

the 1st image was gained from where I've been doing recent work on my next Project ... (soon ..). Beautiful light ...

the Moon rose above the horizon well North of the previous night, & I waited at least 1/4 hr (it took ages ..) to ascend above the Northern headland at Wattamolla. The looming-Moon lightshow was really spectacular...

probably better than the actual moon viewing. Beautiful, though. If you ever shoot the Full Moon, try (very hard) to shoot the 1st night. The colours in the image are way superior. Till next time ..!


* Full (Super) Moon at Wattamolla - 9th September 2014. September 10 2014

   I've been chasing the definitive Full Moon images, for ages now. I still haven't got them. but, last night, I came close... Over the period, I've been disappointed with Lens choice, Composition, other people in the images (it's Digital, mate. take it again ..), not to mention the weather. I've put a lot of time in at Wattamolla lately (more about that, soon ...), & I've been rained on & rained out a LOT (who said it never rains in Australia..).                                  Last night was beautiful. Just superb. The way the Light hit the northern headland was breath-taking. The colour the Light took on as the Moon climbed up to the Cloud layer was superb. The clarity of the scene was absolute. In the following images, I've done just enough Light-Painting to bring the fore-ground into the image, & just enough Shadows conversion to give detail to the Headland. I'm still shaking my head at the silhouette of the Headland ...
