Super Moon

I set my camera gear up to shoot the super moon here in Santa Cruz California and I had mixed results. First I set up in the wrong place and missed the moon rise over the mountains in Monterey. Then I had a hard time getting the sharpness I was wanting as my eyesite has taken a dip in the last couple months, So the best i could do was this using a tele-extender on my 70-210 lens. The colors were nice but overall I will not be using this shot much unless I find a shot I have taken that needs a moon in the background. A little photoshoping and, zing, I will have a nice moonrise in the background.
