I took this photograph along the coast near Kogel Bay, South Africa. I originally saw a similar photograph taken my a professional and decided to have a go at it myself. It took many attempts to get the right spot at the right time.
Later this year, I entered my photo in a regional eisteddfod and to my delight received a gold award!
I admire photographs which captures a certain experience of nature.
I rose early on Monday morning to view the rare phenomenon of a super moon and lunar eclipse. I tried my best to take some decent pictures. It was an unique and rare experience though!
A super moon is when the moon orbits closest to Earth and a lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly into Earth’s shadow giving it a reddish hue (hence the name “blood moon”). These two events occurring at the same time are extremely rare. The last time this happened was in 1982 and the next time it will happen is ‘n 2033.
