No, This Is Not a Supermoon Photo

and neither are most of those sent to me by folks. Why? A Supermoon is “brighter-larger” visually than the moon we see normally. The photos sent me were nice, I’m sure a blast to take but just taking a picture of the moon in the sky, be it super or not could be any full moon, couldn’t it? If you walked outside last night and looked up at the moon, depending on where you were it might have looked brighter but without some reference, it didn’t look any bigger. This all comes down to the classic problem we all face every time we go to take a photograph, storytelling! In the photo above, it’s a double exposure, one for the B-25 and the other for the moon.

To be honest, it was a challenge! Some of the old locales which use to be so shorebird and wader rich were literally no more than dirt lots! Numbers on the beaches were well down as well. We found birds and had a great time, but it simply wasn’t the same. Above is a flock of spring skimmers that were hanging out. Love watching them fly, such a great nature pattern on the wing....
