15 Photos of the January 2014 Mini Full Moon with a Pentax K3

Full Moon

There were some serious, black clouds in the sky last night.

They called this one the mini moon because it's the smallest one we'll see this year.

The first time it peeked through the clouds, I shot it. These three photos were taken at 7:10PM.

 Normally, I wouldn't bother shooting cloudy moon pictures.

But, you never know. The moon might have never showed, again. And, It doesn't hurt to practice.

 The black clouds rolled-in and, I was sure we would lose sight of the moon, again.

 The two images above, were taken at 7:11PM.

The moon didn't come out from behind the clouds, again, until 7:15.

There must be a mule, somewhere, in my family tree.

Because, I can get stubborn. I stood out there on HWY329, freezing.

Every chance I got, I fired, three quick shots, using burst mode.

Because, I could see more clouds, blowing in, fast.

The stubborninity started to payoff at 7:23.

Chances were, I might never get to see the moon any better than this.

So, me and the camera went Click, Click, Click.

Clouds, wind, fire, cold and trucks, shaking the highway, couldn't stop me.

 The smallest full moon of the year was what I went out to get.
