‘Super’ moon and St Michael’s Mount

Posted on June 22, 2013

I nipped over to the ‘other side’ yesterday evening (by that I mean the south coast, rather than my home territory of the north coast), to see if I could get a shot of the rising full moon, as it was not only full, but also extra large, being as close as it ever gets to Earth at the moment.

Conditions were pretty good, a little hazy but not cloudy.  I wasn’t sure where the best vantage point would be to see it as it rose – initially I started at Penzance harbour, then drove to Marazion  where a hazy moon was just appearing – I quickly realised the best spot would be at Long Rock (between Marazion and Penzance), so dashed over there to snap the attached.  I had the best feeling I know as a photographer – which is being in the right place, at the right time with good conditions!
