Supermoon moonrise - San Francisco Bay Bridge

Tonight was the "supermoon", where the moon was closest to the earth and therefore 14% bigger and brighter.


I decided to go to Alamo Square...that park where those victorian houses appear in the opening scene of "full house" there is a great cityscape view behind it, and facing east I thought it would be cool to get the moon coming over the city. But, it was very windy there, so I continued on to Pier 7. Lucky me...the moon rose under the bay bridge!


It wasn't as big as I expected, but nevertheless, I liked this shot as the moon 'kissed' the bridge. Once it got higher, it started to get so bright, it was difficult to get an exposure with both the bridge and the moon.
