Super Moon, Super Camera

A famous photographer once went to dinner with some friends."You take such good photos," said the hostess. "You must have a fabulous camera." The photographer smiled. "I do," he replied. "And dinner was great. You must have some wonderful pots and pans."

Yeah, I stole that from somewhere, but the eye of the photographer is as important as the tools. However, in the world of photography, the camera can make a huge difference.

Darling just got her new Nikon Coolpix P900 with an 83x digital zoom. Yeah, that's a lot of camera, and I can't recommend it highly enough. (Full disclosure: that's an affiliate link)

So here are some pictures of the SuperMoon, one from the night before (Nov 13, 2016) and one from the night of the full moon (Nov 14, 2016). Because we live in the USA, the moon was a little bigger the night before.

Nov 13 - love the view of the craters

Nov 14

FYI, this was the closest the moon has been to the Earth since January 26, 1948 - and it won't be this close again until November 25, 1934. We had a close one in May of 2012, but we didn't have this camera!
