It's high up here in Barstow, nearly 2200 feet above sea level, in the clean clear desert air, washed down by today's rain. Tonight's Supermoon is especially clear and bright, pulling the eye towards it and seeming to fill a large portion of the sky. Of course it a perceptual illusion, but it's convincing...
I've got my DSLR with me, so I fitted the big Sigma 55-200 lens and went out into the cold motel car park to try and photograph the moon. It took a couple of shots to get the speed right - I keep forgetting that when photographing the moon you need to be as fast as possible, as you're photographing reflected sunlight from a high albedo body.
A judicious crop, and here you all go - a high desert supermoon.
