Supermoon

Took the camera out on friday evening and again tonight. The moon is apparently 14% bigger than normal, and turning out some big tides too.

As I am in a particularly good humour tonight, and well disposed to all men, I'm gonna pass on that one...

Not only is the moon "bigger" we have experienced some extreme Spring tides.

Out on Sunday and there were people walking all the way round to Old Harry rocks from Studland. Habe not seen that before

The high pressure's kept them down quite a bit, I don't think we quite reached the 39ft HW that was predicted but apparently our low water hit 0.00 (chart datum)

Moon shots can be a touch tricky , as the moon is pretty bright but yet usually only fills a little of the metering frame.
So anything set on auto, is usually way off.
Set to manual- iso 100 F11 at 1/125 will usually get you in the ball park.

I was all ready for the "Big moon" only to get a thick cloud cover move in

Heres one from earlier in the year though
cheers Dal
