Default Super Moon Shots anyone?

I don't see any Super Moon shots anywhere on this forum?

Here are some shots I got a few days ago with the Super Moon & Mt Rainier.

Not quite full moon yet on 7/20/13




Almost full the next day 7/21/13 (the smog almost ruiined the picture)


Full Super Moon on 7/22/13 The sun had just set when the moon came up, so I settled for this.



I had to move around to different spots in Tacoma, WA to position the Moon closer to Mt Rainier. Even used a 12ft ladder for two shots to shoot over bushes.
Sure, I could have put on my 500mm and got a more detailed moon, but that has been done hundreds of times. More rare to get Mt Rainier in it.

love that last one, with just a bit of alpenglow remaining on The Mountain, and the moon hanging above the horizon... nice composition!

Sweet captures Jack55 and thought I would throw mine into the mix if that's ok.
Taken in Spokane Washington using my Sigma 170 - 500mm.

Great capture Wagaboo!
I could have got a similar one like that as I also have the Sigma 150-500mm, but I wouldn't have Mt Rainier in the picture.
