Happy New Year to one and all!
What better way to start the New Year than with the first Supermoon of 2018, which appeared over the horizon in Marblehead, MA just after 4:30 this afternoon. It was a remarkably chilly night to witness the event – the temperature on my phone stated it was about five degrees out-, but the sight made it well worth it.
I rented a couple of lenses this weekend, just to play around with. One was the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS, mostly in an attempt to get better shots of the moon. The first two I attempted below were taken in the parking lot of a local supermarket, the other in my driveway about an hour after dusk.
We’ll see what tomorrow night yields as I sit out in my local favorite beach hangout waiting for the moon to rise. Check back here over the next few days.
In the meantime, a happy and safe weekend to everyone worldwide!
