The supermoon this month is the closest the moon has been to the earth since 1948, which is well before I existed. Tossing the camera and tripod in the car, I traveled out to photograph the rise, but soon noticed that the sky was covered in clouds. At first this was disappointing, but I soon realized – how many perfectly focused exposures of the moon do we really need? This shot felt far superior because it was different than the usual. Sometimes you just have to work with what you got. Sometimes that’s better.
