The rising super moon over western Sydney on 6 May 2012. Two shots merged together to get the correct exposure ballance. The yellow colour and slight distortion on the moon is due to the hazy atmosphere above Sydney.
This was taken from University Western Sydney looking east along the Great Western Highway using my Sigma 150-500mm zoon.

Amazing capture! We didn't get to see the super moon here in NYC because it was very cloudy and even raining a bit. I love the size of this moon, and the clarity is great. I also like your presentation, with the line of cars on the left side of the frame.

Spectacular Chris - a good merge and just a nice touch of human life below.

İs it real
İncredible view of moon and color.
This is like a night painting picture.
Thanks for sharing
Have a good spring day.

i learned too late about this special day for moon or maybe there were clouds, anyway, I haven't seen the supermoon. Fantastic effect.

Quelle impressionnante composition et quelles belles couleurs pour la lune qui semble bien près de la terre à ce moment précis.

A very impressive moon photo. The telephoto does a great job here, showing details on the moon, and the street lights and car lights look good on the left. Good job of merging the two shots.

What a fantastic colour yellow contrasting well with the drak grey sky. That yellow kind of makes me believe the moon really is made of cheese! Nicely composed with the moon off in the upper third. Nice to see you provide info about the lens too - it kind of helps when you are thinking about buying another yourself given the image it produces.
