The Super Moon


I took this photo of the "Super Moon" in Kalamazoo. It was taken from the steps of East Hall, the oldest building of Western Michigan University, which is perched high on a hill overlooking the city.

I'd come prepared with my tripod and telephoto lens, but would not have gotten such a good shot without the kindness of a fellow photographer. All my shots were coming out blurry until he told me to use my self-timer. It made such a difference! Duh.

I just happened to be in Kalamazoo visiting my grandchildren on the night of the Super Moon - the largest moon in nearly 20 years. And what fun! A small group of people gathered at the top of the hill, including a drumming circle. It was quite festive. A wonderful way to welcome Spring!
