On Saturday night I thought I had seen the moon at its closest point to the Earth for the year. Turns out I hadn’t seen nothin’ yet. Despite Australian media reports I had read stating Saturday was the day for the supermoon the reality for us in the southern hemisphere was that Sunday was actually the correct day.
Luckily I had taken myself down to Shorncliffe to take some sunset photos anyway, so I was able to get a few shots, until the battery in my camera died. Oh well, at least it forced me to just appreciate something with my eyes instead of through a lens. Here’s a few pictures of my Sunday afternoon.
It’s completely out of focus, I know. But I kinda like it.
I felt I could reach out and touch it.
My soundtrack for moon gazing was Messages by Xavier Rudd. It was the first song that came on when I jumped back in the car and for some reason it just seemed appropriately complementary.
Sunset, Xavier and a supermoon. A lovely Sunday afternoon.
