“Super Worm Moon Rising” The third and final supermoon of 2019 occurred concurrently with the spring equinox last night. The crazy name for March’s full moon is rooted in agricultural practices and comes from the emergence of worms in the soil around this time. I had planned out a location using the @photopills app to predict where the moon when rise and rushed over getting there just about 10 minutes before its scheduled appearance. Clouds had rolled in pretty heavy on my ride over and upon arrival I didn’t have much hope for getting my shot. But I prepared anyways just in case and setup pointing at my intended target, Guilford‘s iconic Grass Island red shack. By getting as far away from it as I could and still be in line, I used every bit of telephoto lens that I had for the look I was going for. The way a telephoto lens compresses distances emphasizes the foreground subject and appear to shrink the distance between it and the moon. And with the moon appearing it’s largest just as it’s rising above the horizon it’s a combination of factors that I had hoped would work in my head. Looking at the clock I had almost given up hope when all of the sudden the moon appeared just behind my target with a pinkish hue and pushing its way through the clouds. Although the thin layer of clouds kept me from getting the moon as bright and crisp as I had hoped, I was still pumped to be able to create the shot I had intended! Once the moon rise higher the clouds won the battle and reduced the supermoon to a warm muffled glow behind them. • • • • • #connecticut#guilford#moon#supermoon#superwormmoon#moodygrams#landscape_captures #aswediscover#earthfocus#splendid_earth #gramslayers#bns_landscape #discoverearth#visualambassadors#amazing_shots #earthescope#exquisiteearth#bestnatureshot#nature_sultans #amazing_fs #natgeoyourshot#depthsofearth#artofvisuals#igworld_global #newengland#mynewengland#allbeauty_addiction #fifty_shades_of_nature
Did you know that not all Joshua trees are actually named Joshua? This is Clive, framing a small rocky hill. You can also see Fred, Walter, Gertrude, and Patricia, along with several who’s names I did not catch.
Australia's Pacific Coast Drive Road Trip 🇦🇺 | Stop 2: Newcastle Affectionately known as "Newie", Newcastle is a quintessential beach town in the Australian state of New South Wales. In contrast to Sydney's bustling streets, it is less touristy which makes it an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Newcastle's pristine beaches truly left me in awe of nature's wonderful creations. How can one not fall in love with a place like this? 🏖
The Oregon Coast is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. It’s so dramatic, the weather is always moody, and they get some of the biggest waves during the winter that crash up against the cliffs with a ridiculous power. I highly recommend a road trip from Brookings to Ecola State Park. You won’t be disappointed!
Looking for my next adventure. I’ve had a fairly busy start of the year, but if you know me, you know I’m not one for sitting still for long. So, what’s next? @sony @sonyalpha #bealpha#sonyalpha#roamtheplanet Sony A7III Exposure: 1/250 Aperture: f/4 ISO: 100
