Harvest Moon 2016 1

Harvest Moon 2016

On September 16, we had a full moon which was also our harvest moon.  The harvest moon is the full moon closest to the fall equinox (Sept. 22nd).  Since it was a beautiful clear night, I thought I would test out the Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 VR lens.  Here is the shot, which isn't too bad for a relatively inexpensive lens (and Nikon D810).

Taken March 19, 2011 during the "Supermoon" event when the full moon is closer to earth in it's orbit. Lucky for me, we had clear skies and I managed to get this shot of the moon rising over the East Van sign.
