Tried to take one as it appeared over the Hottentots Holland Mountains ...Unfortunately had to take it through the glass in our passage :wall: which made it blurry!!!....But it was a beautiful sight none the less. :)

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.

What beautiful pictures of the moon.

Well Sod's law seems to be in effect around the country.

I'm not complaining because the clouds gave us a small shower of rain and I did get a glimpse of the moon through a little gap at one stage.
