Goodnight Moon

supermoon 5988
The Supermoon, August 10, 2014 
rises over the Philadelphia Museum of Art 
along the banks of the Schuylkill River. 

I bracketed my images 
and combined two in post in order to 
achieve a properly exposed moon 
with a properly exposed museum. 

I climbed down a steep, rocky, weedy hill 
along Martin Luther King Dr. 
in order to get the reflection.  
Thankfully, I didn't slip 
with the cute but terribly impractical shoes I was wearing.
At least they weren't heels!

A girl has gotta do
what a girl's gotta do. 

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

Your "supermoon" was much bigger then the one we saw here in South Europe. That image is fantastic. Thanks for the behind the scenes info on the creation of the shot. It really turned out amazing!

Very nice shot, well worth the dangerous climb

Kathy said...

Absolutely stunning!

STUNNING!! The museum is just a stunning backdrop for this!
Still can't get used to the former West River Drive being renamed!

Karen said...

A fabulous image!

This is just beautiful!!! I LOVE IT! The museum is one of my favorite places in the world - growing up near Philly I have many stories and memories of trips there and even more drive by and walk by sightings! With the moon like that - well, beyond romantic!

Great shot. Our super moon was super clouded over. :(

This is fantastic, Rebecca!
We've not had very good weather for our Super Moon, but we'll have another chance on September 9th! :-)

Nice job and thanks for the bracketing tip. I'm not sure I would have wanted to climb down that hill during the day, let alone in the dark.

WOW - I knew the Super Moon was supposed to be out last night but completely forgot - ugh! This picture is fabulous.

What a marvellous shot! Sadly it was damp and cloudy here.
