Sedona Supermoon

I read about the Supermoon in November of 2016, how it would be the closest moon in almost 70 years, would be 15% larger than normal and 30% brighter! I wanted to do something special to remember this moment. I rented a 600mm lens and used a 2.0X Extender to punch in to a staggering 1200mm for this shot. Foreground would be important to capture this moment and I found a perfect ridge to frame the moment. This was my final shot as the Supermoon set in the western sky just minutes after it's largest size in almost 70 years. I felt exhilarated knowing the I had captured a fleeting moment in time.
