The 2019 Super Moon in Amsterdam

February 19, 2019

During the biggest super moon of the year (today, the 19th of February 2019) I took the opportunity to photograph it close to my house in Amsterdam. I also shot it the day before the full supermoon (18th of February, 2019. The photos from yesterday actually turned out better because there were beautiful thin mystical clouds hanging around and over the moon. This just gave that extra magic touch to the photos of that day.

 

Supermoon right behind the cross on top of the St. Nicolas church in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Shot at 800A bit of a wider shot at 450mm with the moon right in between the 2 towers of the church.

Also, when I already had the shots I wanted I could go during todays' morning and shoot something different: video. Here's a video sequence I did this morning. I really like the birds and planes flying in front of the moon!

 

 

Gear used:

 

Sony A7RIII with 100-400 GM and 2x extender

Photoclam tripod

Benro Gearhead for small adjustments (a gear head is great for this kind of usage).
