Pink Super Moon

Last night was a ‘Pink Super Moon', there is a bit of a misconception that this means the moon is actually pink but the name is derived because the fool moon occurs around the time of April when the moss pink, or wild ground phlox is typically in blossom (in northern hemisphere). The Super moon phrase is because the moon is at the closest point to earth in its monthly orbit.

This photo was taken last night (to compliment the significant number of moon photos on the net). Image was captured with a Nikon D610 and Tamron 150-600mm (@ 600mm), 1/3200, f/6.3, ISO 1250. Image is a HDR blend of three photos which was edited in Aurora HDR before being finished off in Luminar 4 (AI Enhance & Micro Structure). Sadly the image is not great as (among other reasons) the highlights are a bit blown out as I should have bracketed a greater number of images.
