supermoon?

More like superclouds in DC last night.


Disappointed that we wouldn't see it, we were on our way to the metro station when it finally appeared.



Walking "closer", we found ourselves at Freedom Plaza where people were dancing the tango.


Yes, my photos are not of the best quality. There were photographers next to me with enormous cameras and tripods... I used my husband's shoulder as a tripod. :)


Did you see it? Where were you when it appeared in all its coppery glory?

  2. I saw it. And pictured while it was only dusk... I don't have a tripod so there's a lousy chance to picture it, after dark, with my basic camera or with mobile?!
    It was indeed huge. When dark came it become covered by the clouds. But at 3 - yes one of those sleepless night - it was glorious, lovely, huge (to the point I thought someone had left the lights on in the garden, so I went to check, dogs went too and didn't want to come back inside).
    Your pictures are awesome and husband's shoulder's lend pretty much appreciated.
    Take Care and Have a Wonderful Week,
    Teresa

  3. Πολύ ωραίες οι φωτογραφίες σου, ειδικά εκείνη με το tango! Τι ρομαντικό!
    Εγώ το είδα ελάχιστα το φεγγάρι, μόλις έκανε την εμφάνισή του πίσω από το βουνό (γιατί έχουμε βουνό εδώ στην Καλαμάτα) και ήταν πολύ φωτεινό και εντυπωσιακό... Τράβηξα και μερικές σκοτεινές φωτογραφίες με το κινητό, αλλά δεν ασχολήθηκα περισσότερο χαχα!
    Καλή εβδομάδα! Φιλάκιαα!

  4. Τι σημασία έχει η ανάλυση; Σημασία έχει η στιγμή που την κράτησες και σε φωτογραφία..
    Καλή εβδομάδα Εύη μου!!

  5. Ja, ich habe den riesigen Vollmond auch gesehen. Er schien direkt in unser Wohnzimmerfenster.

  6. Οι φωτογραφίες σου είναι τέλειες!!
    Πού να δεις πως βγήκε το δικό μου το φεγγάρι...χαχα!...πολύ "θορυβώδες"!!
    Αλλά η δική μου μηχανή είναι και αρχαία και όχι τρίποδο δεν ξέρει τι είναι, αλλά ούτε ζουμ καλά καλά!!
    Τις λάτρεψα όλες, μα εκείνη με το τάνγκο είναι έργο τέχνης!!
    Καλή εβδομάδα!

  14. Well your pictures look waay better than mine. (My camera has trouble focusing day or night, and the humidity around here fogs the lens up).

    I haven't visited your blog in a while. I had no idea you moved to DC! I hope you like it. My brother visited DC a few times, for work, and he loves it. My sister has been there a couple times as well.

  15. I did see it!! My husband and I were standing in the middle of our neighbourhood street, tripod set up and clicking away for a good half hour. I got some really good shots -- I'll have them on my blog for my WW post tomorrow.
    I didn't know I was such a space geek - but I love looking at all the super moon pictures. You really captured the brightness -- ours didn't quite glow so much as it was just huge.

  16. Κι εγώ το έχω καημό που δεν μπορώ να τραβήξω καλές νυχτερινές. Είναι όμως μέσα στους μελλοντικούς στόχους μου!
