The full super moon rose as my corn field caught the last rays of the setting sun this evening.

The first one was only visible for maybe 2 minutes before it rose behind the cloud bank. I was standing on the top step of a six foot step ladder out in the corn field in order to get above the tall corn. I used the Photographers Ephemeris to know where to place the ladder in the field ahead of time.

The second shot was while the moon played hide and seek behind the clouds.

Thank you Pam and Linda. Actually a friend of mine was shooting tonight also. I encouraged him to join UHH, now I just need to get him to post one of his shots. (we took turns standing on the ladder.)

Just beautiful, Greg! Love the first one...maybe I'd crop off a little of the bottom, but it's a phenominal shot and very well done!
