Tonight was the night of the "Super Moon." This is the night when the full Moon is the closest to Earth that it will be all year. A few of us from the local photo club got together on the edge of Harbor Island to watch the Moon rise over the downtown San Diego skyline. We were not the only ones with that idea, there were lots of people out there with cameras set up on tripods - all pointed at the same thick layer of clouds right were the Moon was supposed to rise.
After quite a while the Moon finally broke through the clouds.

About me . . . When I'm not working I like to be out exploring and photographing. I do this blog just for fun, and to be able to share these images with friends. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
