Timelapse: SuperMoon Rising, 12 July 2014, Greece

  Another SuperMoon tonight! Did you get to see it? I shot a little timelapse again but i still think last year’s was the best! Maybe August’s SuperMoon will be a better contender… I’m starting to think they ended up naming each typical full moon a supermoon just to make a fuss about it. Not impressed here…

Not a Blood Moon but still…

Hello my dear friends 😀

  Did you get to experience the awesome and creepy blood moon? Unfortunately, the eclipse was not visible in Greece but we still got to see a very nice full moon rising. The sky was cloudy but that helped to get a more interesting image than just the moon in a simple black sky.

  To get this shot i used my Canon 60D with the Jupiter 135mm + a Vivitar teleconverter x2 . First i took a shot exposed for the clouds (shutter speed 0.8/s, f/8, Iso 320) and then a shot exposed for the moon (shutter speed 1/40s, f/8, Iso 320). In Photoshop i masked the moon and placed it on the photo of  the clouds. I added some contrast to make the image more dramatic and also added a warmer tone…

  How did the full moon make you feel?  Did any of you transform into a werewolf or something? 😛 This eclipse is supposed to affect us all in very significant ways…I don’t know if i believe that but while i was looking at the moon, all i could think of were the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by Laleh…

I’m walking on the streets like a wolf
The people, the city, the colors
This world is in mad hands
The world that I’m so much a part ofIt’s a beauty when the streets are wet
There’s a sense of hope and change to it
And I love it how the moon shinesBut will my stars align, will my stars align?

It’s a beauty when the streets are wet
There’s a sense of hope and change to it
And I love it how the moon shines

But will our stars align? Will our stars align?

  If you don’t know her, look her up, she’s an amazing artist. A true artist, as she produced, written, recorded, engineered and performed all of her songs by herself. I can only wish to meet her one day and would love to get the chance to work with her on something really creative. Her music and lyrics not only inspire me immensely but also speak to my soul in ways that no other artist ever did. Every cell inside me feels alive and connected to the present and to my feelings when i hear her music…Oh yes, this post was about the full moon…Ehm, you can guess what i was listening to while making this post and i got carried away 😀 Hope you enjoyed this…

Best regards,
