There’s a light at the end of the tunnel

. . . and it’s the moon. My telephoto lens needs repairs so all I had to take a picture of the super moon with was my 17-55mm lens. I propped it onto the tripod and went outside.

And there were clouds everywhere.

I was so disappointed. Until I realized the clouds add a lot of drama and dimension to the picture. It’s nowhere near a great shot of the moon, but the editing makes it pretty dramatic. And you can almost pick out a fibonacci spiral in the clouds.
