Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. If you like what you see, I encourage you to subscribe so you can enjoy the new photos I post a few times a week.

Technically this photo is a zoom and not a macro but I really wanted to take the opportunity to share it with you. I took it on June 21, 2013, when the moon was almost full and was supposed to be the supermoon of 2013. I actually tried to take a photo of the full moon on Saturday and then again on Sunday, when the moon was supposed to be at its fullest. But there was obviously some haze or cloud cover between me and the moon and the surface of the moon wasn’t very sharp. So here’s an almost full supermoon, also called a perigee moon. I love being able to capture so many moon details, including the craters on the bottom part. By the way, I used my brand new Canon Powershot SX280 HS camera for this picture, with a 20x optical zoom. I already love this camera!

      Thank you! I’m so glad I took this photo a few days early because I had no idea the sky would be so covered on the days the moon would be its fullest.

    I was only able to get a glimpse of the moon through the trees over the weekend so this is great to see – thank you!

  3. Amazing crater detail! Almost like water droplets hanging on the moon
