Super Moonday

Last night (a Monday) was the night before the official full moon.  This one is the third and last so-called Super Moon of the year.

The first go-round of photographs was a dud.  I'd forgotten the exposure tips for shooting the moon.  Got nice, dramatic clouds but a completely washed out moon.  The trick is to use a tight aperture, like f/16.  It's one of those few times where a manual exposure comes in really handy.

Post-processing is Black & White, using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
