How bigger than usual was the big perigee moon 2013?
363,300 km far above … you have probably already watched hundreds of pictures representing the “14% bigger than usual” perigee moon. I could shoot this big moon with the same lens and camera used for a normal, average sized moon (384,400 km far away).
I doubt I could have recognize such difference without a digital comparison.
Nevertheless, a good occasion to practice moon photography with clouds! D800 set up: 70-200 VR-II mounted, spot metering, ISO 100, 1/400 sec and f/5.6 – easy to shoot it even hand-held!
I appreciate your looking at your photos. It is something that does make me use my imagination! So, I’ve nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogger Award! Congratulations!
Dear Jim, I am honored you nominated artborghi for the Super Sweet Blogger award. Thank you very much. Even more, I am glad artborghi pictures let you use your imagination: that’s such a great award to a photographer!
I will honor the rules of this award in a new post as soon as possible … despite the huge amount of calories required 😉
You are welcome. I hear you about the calories…I am off to the golf course now!
you are missing the scale bar in the 2nd pic! hahaha…
In the third (after “read more”) picture you do not need it 🙂
