As I was helping my next door neighbors string Christmas lights between our houses I remembered there was a supermoon coming. Of course, I got tied up in life and making dinner and missed the rise, but I did make it out for a quick photo. I’ll say this, a 400mm lens would come in handy when shooting the moon. What is most interesting to me about this shot, however, is the difference between the manmade “white” LED lights and the natural white light bouncing off of the moon.
