Saw the first stages of what is to come later this evening.... photo taken today at 07h17 this morning as the moon was setting behind Lions Head, in Cape Town.

Unfortunately I only have a point and shoot camera. :(

This made me think that all our 'mites with super special cameras could perhaps showcase their magnificent photos taken this evening here, for the enjoyment of us all. :D

It's very cloudy here so I haven't been able to see all of the supermoon, saw a small bit thru an opening in the clouds earlier, it certainly is bright

Thank you Trrp for the lovely pic of it :gflower:

Trrp-trrrrrrrr, well spotted as I was not aware until I arrived back home from a sunset shoot of Table Mountain from the Tygerberg Nature Reserve. As I was shooting some wonderful sunsets from the hill, a visitor called me to come and have a look at the moon rising over the Hottentot Holland Mountains.

After arriving back home, SO told me that it is Super Moon tonight and was I so glad that I managed to enjoy it and managed to get a few pics. :dance:

WOW was that amazing. Here are two pics of the bunch. Just a pity I did not have my tripod with me to get some decent close-ups.
