    Clouds are Nature's beautiful and magical way of hiding the nasty daytime fireball...

A few interesting shots of that, yes, but the moon was nowhere to be seen. Interesting company, at least, and an open bar, so it wasn't a total loss.
    I quietly sipped my whiskey while gazing at if for hours from my crappy little trailer here in south Texas. The clouds passed by partially obscuring the glowing orb alternating with long clear views. Rains and gently rumbling thunderstorms followed later in the night providing a nice lullaby to fall asleep to. I like country living.

    Drove out from SFe to Fort Union (a set of ruins from the old pioneer days) in hopes of using the 4x5 and 210mm to get the moon in the backgorund....FRIGGEN PARK WAS CLOSED. Whoops. So went up into the mountains and watched it from a ridge. No pictures, but sure was purdy.

    100% cloud coverage here, sure would like to have seen it.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    It happens about once every 14 months. Last year's was closer. It's extremely doubtful that even a photographer would be able to detect a 1/3 stop difference in brightness or a 14% difference in size, without a "normal" moon hanging next to the "supermoon" for comparison.

    Weather cooperated this evening. Will see what the negatives look like tomorrow. Tomorrow is the full moon night. Weather may behave but this is thunder storm in evening season along the Ohio River valley.

    It's a little different for everybody but in my locale full moon is at 5:32 AM manana so tonight is the closest.

    Cool thing for figuring this is the Photographers Ephemeris.
