(50 words story)  – Golden Aura –

The bright golden aura was  expanding through the darkness of clouds lighting up the sky. Unconscious awareness of an awakening soul, was swimming through the thirst of truth. Climbing stairs of universal love, finding peace and happiness into a raising moon. ” – ©CR

Super Full Moon 2nd night photos!

November Supermoon 2nd night photos with the Full Moon!

Yesterday night I had a second attempt to photograph the beautiful “Supermoon” yesterday was also the day of the “Full Moon”. Once again here in California the sky was beautiful and clear I am so glad. I have been lucky this month. Last October I remember that when we had full moon the sky was full of clouds, covering the moon and not a chance to take any photos. Yesterday and the night before photos turned out pretty well. I am really happy!  There is a pretty good sharpness and definition on these photos, you can see the details and pretty much all the lunar craters.  This moon shot was taken outside home around 6pm last night. I am amazed because I didn’t used a tripod!  For whom interested  I used my camera  Nikon D3300 and a Telephoto zoom  lens 70-300mm I don’t remember the settings because  I did change several while shooting. The first photo in this post is barely edited, I only cropped to have a close up I see that there is a purple reflection on the top I don’t know what caused that maybe because I was holding the camera. Overall I am happy with it!

I also attempted with some help to get an artistic photo with me holding the moon in my hand! ❤  I guess turned out great! I just had to edit this one a little to make sure that my profile is visible, because the photo was taken without flash in complete darkness, only with the moonlight that was very bright. This is an iPhone 6 photo and was taken yesterday on a nighttime hiking walk, I went to walk right after I took the moon shots.

I have been always fascinated by the moon, since I was a child. I always loved to just look up at the sky and admire her beauty surrounded by stars.

I know that in several parts of the world this full moon wasn’t visible, cause clouds and weather.  I am happy that I was able to witness and share this moment with you through my photography!

Wish you all a wonderful week!

November Supermoon!

Tonight I went for a nocturne hike!
I went in a whim without plan anything. I carried my camera with the intent to be lucky to find the beautiful Super Moon and meet her between the hills. I had the wish to find a clear sky without clouds and be able to get a good shot of this memorable moment!  November 2016 Supermoon is supposed to be the closest, brightest  and the largest since 1948.  It is indeed a moment to capture!
I took several shots but this one is the one I love the most and I want to share it with you. Today here in California we had a beautiful evening the temperature was pleasant and the sky was super clear, no clouds, just beautiful! And here it is, the gorgeous moon dominating the sky in her brightest beauty!

Have a wonderful night or day! ❤
Enjoy the Supermoon!

Thank You!
