Grab a Camera and Get Ready for the June 2013 Supermoon !

The Full Moon this Month is Called a Supermoon


It is because the moon will be closer to earth than, at any other time, this year.

That also means, the high tide will be higher than normal.

And, low tides will go lower for a few days.

It's always a good idea to get some practice with the camera before the night of the full moon.

This photo was taken last night at Hedo Point in Okinawa.

We camped out overnight to catch the summer solstice sunrise and, sort of got ripped-off.

The sun didn't come up where we wanted it to and was blocked by low-flying clouds.

A long time ago, I learned, when things don't go the way you want them to, just fix it.

You can do that easy.

Just go somewhere else and, do something different.

So, instead of a bunch of sunrise photos, I came home with something I hadn't planned on.

Besides a few moon shots, I got over 300 photos of wild critters and exotic places.

Most likely, I'll be too tired to practice moon shots tonight.

But, Supermoon Sunday, June 23, 2013 I'll be out there, somewhere.
