Supermoon on the Grey

The moon was magnificent this evening, but not to start with.

The plan was simple; … find a place where the moon will appear on the horizon of the Adelaide hills so as to silhouette the white tower of the Mount Lofty scenic lookout.

Google maps is a wonderful tool but finding line of clear sight vantage points is not one of its strong points but with a little creativity I managed to set up my tripod balanced on the edge is of multi-story car park with a tiny windowed view mostly encumbers by local trees.

As nature always has the last say the clouds stayed stubbornly on that grey horizon delaying the moon’s ‘Supermoon’ appearance until it had crested both.
