We walked miles through rain, sleet and snow, not finding a single photograph. Light faded, day turned to night - and just as we emerged from forestry tracks onto the road, a bright beam of warm light low on the horizon caught my eye. Naturally, the clouds obscured the sight immediately I started setting up the camera and tripod - but a couple of minutes later and the full moon rose behind the trees. In popular parlance, a full moon coinciding with the lunar perigee makes it a "supermoon"; the second full moon of the year, in winter, made it a "snowmoon". Seven RAW frames shot in burst mode, focussed on the moon, for superresolution, processed in RawTherapee and median-blended in Affinity Photo.
This image is available for purchase in a variety of formats including framed print and homewares from redbubble.
