Throwback Thursday – Supermoon Set

A supermoon is an event that takes place when a new or full moon, traveling on its elliptical orbit, approaches Earth at the closest point possible, thus making it appear a whopping 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal.  Many came out at sunset, or “moonrise”, to observe this phenomenon, but Kurt, thinking a bit out of the box, took advantage of an additional option.

“I’m going to photograph the setting of the moon.”

So early on the morning of November 14th, he packed up the necessary gear, and headed to Lake Dardanelle State Park.   Clouds were painted across the sky,  impeccable adornment for some stunning shots!

The lunar glow reflected on the waters; the setting, nothing less than the serenity of dawn at its best!
