La Lune dans les Arbres

I know, I know, another moon photo...

But I did spend ages a couple of days ago with huge amounts of technology to try and get the supermoon rising behind some recognisable landmark, only to find I was about half a mile out when the little blighter finally appeared...

So those shots went in the bin...

Anyhow, whilst driving back home, the moon was popping up over a ridge of trees not too far from where I live. So out came the tripod, lens, extender, the lot, for a second time and now in the dark.

So this is a seven (yes, seven) bracket series to get both the foreground and the moon reasonably well exposed, then popped into Lightroom to do some basic HDR and editing, and Photoshop for some finishing off.

Definitely better on black if you have the time...

It looks lovely, and at least you saw the moon. It has been conspicuous in it's absence this week in New Zealand. Just earthquakes, and rain!

Excellent! So glad you found a spot to catch this. We've had clouds on the horizon since Sunday evening so no chances at the rising moon, and I'm not an early riser so I'm not going to get a setting moon either.
