Sunday’s Snapshot – Supermoon with Jetliner Passing By

July 13, 2014
supermoon with jetliner passing by

Nikon D3200, handheld – 300mm – ISO 800 – f/5.6 – 1/1000 – cropped – July 12, 2014, 10:35 p.m.                              (Image copyrighted to Mary McAvoy)

I tried to get a good moon shot on supermoon night, but that night the moon was just too bright and all the images came out overexposed beyond repair. But the night before and the night after (last night), I did get some great shots. The moon was visually just as full but it was darker and easier to capture.

I was aware last night as I took a series of photos that something passed in front of the lens for one of my shots. I thought it was an insect. The mosquitos were buzzing all around me making for less than optimal conditions.

So, I was stunned when I sorted through my photos and saw the jetliner clear as can be passing in front of the moon!

I love when I get a “two-fer” (two-for-one) – two interesting subjects in one photo, with one being a complete surprise.

I think this is my best two-fer ever!!!

      Thanks, Jim!
      I was so happy when I saw this photo after downloading them all.
      Please feel free to reblog the post!
      I think anyone who loves the moon would enjoy seeing it!
      Thanks again, Mary
