An Almost-Super Moon

Betsy and I were in Simpsonville, South Carolina, on the Saturday night of the super moon.  Unfortunately there were heavy clouds and storms in Simpsonville that night, so we missed the super moon.

Fortunately Sunday night, at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, was beautiful and clear.  The not-quite-so-super moon put in an appearance over the ocean almost opposite our room.  I was able to get this picture from the balcony of our room.

We watched the moon rise in the sky and lay a silver stream of light on the surface of the water.

The sight was so incredibly beautiful that we both felt it made up for missing the super moon the night before.

    Wow!! That is absolutely beautiful!!
    I didn’t get to see the moon either because it was cloudy here that night here too. Somehow I think what you a Betsy saw was even better.

    Wow, George, Wow!!!!! These are your best moon shots ever…the first one has so much good contrast, and I love the way it is reflecting on the water in the others. The clouds just give it more dimension and interest.

    John and I had talked about you getting a photo of the super moon while you and Betsy were vacationing.
    I’ll be sure to share these amazing pictures with John. Thanks for sharing.
