26 May 2021 - Super Blood Moon
Super - when moon is closest to the earth, appearing 12% bigger and also brighter.
Blood - during lunar eclipse when earth shadows fall on the moon causing a reddish hue.

This series of the moon was taken as it rises from behind the Hottentots-Holland Mountain range in Cape Town region on a cloudy evening.

Absolutely stunning. Love the moody look created by the clouds. :clap: :clap:

Also went out to photograph it, but sadly I did not have the wonderful surroundings like you did.

The eclipse wasn't visible where I live (northeastern USA), so I really appreciate your stunning photos, Kaapsedraai! :gflower: :big_eyes: :gflower:
