Sunset, Swan and Supermoon

Saturday evening, Motor Man and I were ready to watch for the rising of the “Supermoon”.  We had read that it should be visible shortly after sunset.

So we went out to take some photos of the sunset, and there was Groom Swan, waiting for bread.

He is always ready to eat. Perhaps we’ve spoiled him.

Shortly after Groom Swan’s dinner, Motor Man and I spotted the Supermoon, rising behind the trees.

I really, really hope you either saw the moon in person (preferably) or, at least, a better picture of it than this.  Photographing the moon is obviously no simple task, even if it is a Supermoon.  I think we’ll stick to sunsets and swans.
