The first full moon of Spring 2020 was a 'super moon', where the moon's orbit takes it closer to the earth than normal and thus the moon appears larger in the sky than it usually does.
So I was out on my front path, camera and big lens pointing skywards, to photograph the event.
On the evening in question there was a lot of high, broken cloud passing across the sky, alternatively covering and exposing the face of the moon.
So as well as shooting this time lapse of the moon with my 100-400mm zoom lens set at 380mm to show the moon as large as possible, I also shot a time lapse at the 100mm end of my zoom range, showing the clouds racing across the sky, lit by the moon as it slowly rose across my composition.
Rather beautiful I think!
