SuperBlueBloodMoon

SuperBlueBloodMoon:

  •             Super: the moon is closer to the Earth and so visually larger
  •             Blue: the second full moon in the month, nothing to do with color
  •             Blood: a total eclipse turns the moon a reddish color
  •             Moon: the Earth’s natural satellite!

I should have gotten up earlier and driven to my favorite spot with a good view to the west. But I didn’t, so I found a spot in the neighborhood to snap a few pictures before the moon set below the tree line.

Camera geek info:

  •             Canon EOS 60D in manual mode set at f/4, 1/30 second exposure, ISO 800
  •             Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens, set at 145 mm, manual focus on moon
  •             Tripod

 

Here I focused on the foliage instead of the moon and played around with color in post-processing. Which do you like better: the natural color or the more saturated color?
