Even though I assume you live near me or I live near you...
The moon I saw was not that big ? ? ? I love your shots better than mine but I did have fun playing with the settings on my new camera.

cheers, parsnip

Beautifully clicked..we could n't see that much bigger moon

Diane AZ said...

The closer you view it to the horizon, the bigger it looks. :)

Diane, these are awesome. I love the cactus in the shots. I didn't get to see the moon here...too many clouds out my way. Beautiful.

I just want to keep them on my screen all day and enjoy.

Happy Monday dear Diane!

Gorgeous, Diane. You are in a perfect place to see it. We couldn't see it on the horizon due to our mountains...

Love the one with the cactus in front... NEAT.
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh wow. Thanks for posting those. I missed the whole moon spectacle this weekend because of heavy cloud cover.

I read about this in the papers. then I forgot about it in the night. It's great that you captured this supermoon. Love your pics... so obvious. And I can see why they say said that the moon will look bigger than usual.

Thendral said...

Very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

betchai said...

wow, love all the photos Diane, though I am so jealous with the saguaro in the foreground, we don't have saguaro here. Anyway, your supermoon shots really showcased the majestic supermoon.

Goodness, these are SO beautiful! The full moon rose over our valley here in Switzerland as well, but I haven't such a good lens and my moon pictures never turn out like this. I love these. Thank you for sharing!
