August 2014 Supermoon

I used a long lens to capture this image of the August 2014 supermoon.

I had to make a short exposure (less than 50th of a second) because the moon movesquickly in the sky and would blur easily. Also the moon is fairly bright so there’s plenty of light for details. Look at all those crags!

I used my 75-300mm zoom set to 300mm on a tripod.
