Perigee Moon

Last night the moon was the closest to earth it is going to be for another 18 years.  I had to take photos or at least try to capture it in photos.  I didn't have much luck last night.  But when I woke this morning, I was able to take some photos that I think turned out well.

The bright photo with the ring of light is one I took on auto setting.  The rest of the photos were taken on manual setting.  Because there is a slower shutter speed, you can see much more detail.

I took these photos on auto just before the moon set this morning.  There was enough light then for me to shoot these strictly on auto.  How beautiful it was!

Awesome photos Genny! I wish I had tried it on the manual setting, the details are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Spring!
