POTD: Super Blue

Super Blue
Bozeman, Montana

Even though I wasn’t really prepared for it (e.g. we were in town and I’d left my tripod at our cabin), I felt obligated to photograph the super blue moon two days ago since it is the last one for some umpteen years to come. With a high ISO setting (hence a faster shutter speed) and a deck railing to lean the camera on I got a fairly sharp image even using my 600mm telephoto lens. Somehow though this image seems somewhat incomplete, like it needs a kid on a bicycle ferrying an extraterrestrial being in the air across the front of the moon. ET phone home! Actually I did something similar some years ago, inspired more by nursery rhymes than movies though:
