The capture of a super moon against an interesting landmark involves the gathering of information about the movement of the moon and the weather forecasts for the occasion. An image can be composed by moving around the objects that you want to present until the main focus of your work is presented. Studio photography gives you the best control over the presentation of your images because you can control the lighting. Outdoor photography involves the capturing of images from the best position.

On Tuesday, 27th April there was a supermoon which was called the pink supermoon. The above landmark was what I wanted to include. This could be achieved but the moon would be so high up above the landmark from where I was located. The alternative was to travel to a different part of London, England to capture the supermoon. On this occasion I did not want to travel too far out. Have a look at my web site posts “The Moon our Satellite” and “Moon Light and Clouds”.
For the capture of the super moon I decided to include Tottenham Football Stadium. This is the view of the stadium from Alexandra Palace, London.
On the 19th March 2011 at 18:23 I was at Alexandra Palace, London. This was to capture the moon rising. The image above was captured.
I wanted to catch the moon rising two days before the supermoon.
The sun was too bright so the moon did not show up in the sky for over 40 minutes and was very faint as shown above.
On the 26th April I attempted to capture the moon rising and had an added issue of clouds in the way.
For the moon rise the moon still remained faint. The sun was setting over the drive-in at Alexandra Palace. It was time to leave.
From Tottenham Hale, London I captured a lovely moon for that evening.
The moon can be seen from my living room window which made it easy to keep capturing images.
I continued capturing images of the moon from the evening of the 26th April to the early morning of the 27th April. At approximately 4:15 a.m. the moon was supposed to be a supermoon because it was close to the earth. I was fortunate on this occasion to capture this event. There were clouds in the sky but they did not obscure my images of the moon. It was time to head out to capture the main event.
I arrived at my destination and captured an image of the sun’s light rising over the horizon.
I started capturing images of the moon over the Tottenham Football Stadium, London from different locations.
I continued capturing images of the moon whilst it was setting for the morning.
The sun was on its way up.
The moon had taken on a lovely pink colour as it passed over the Tottenham Football Stadium. From previous posts about the moon I was not able to capture a supermoon because the sky was cloudy. On this occasion I captured a super moon and the moon over an interesting landmark. It was fun.
