The Pink Supermoon

The last couple of nights have been beautifully clear and I have been enjoying photographing the Pink Supermoon.  A supermoon occurs at time when the full or new moon approaches its closest point to the Earth; its perigee.  The Pink Supermoon is named not for its colour but from a northern Native American reference to an early blooming wild flower.  Pink or not it was spectacular.  The images were taken at different times from just after moonrise when it was still nearly daylight up to 11.00 pm. As can be seen from the images, just after moonrise it is a very golden colour which gradully changes to the more familiar silver colour the higher in the sky it rises.
