Humber Park Moon

humberparkgullsI got caught up in all the “super moon” excitement this week. I also happened to be on the west side of Toronto.

I thought I’d stop for a bit in Humber Park to see if I could catch a snap of the big ole’ moon coming up over the city.

humberparkphotogsI wasn’t alone. A gaggle of photographers arrived about the same time I did and we all set up together, waiting.

Super Moon, apparently is a term coined by Richard Nolle as an easier way to say “perigee-syzygy,” which happens quite frequently and which, pronunciation issues aside, I actually like better.

The gulls, however, were more than happy to fly through some shots to add a little interest.

I’ve never had much luck with the full moon photos. But I’m ok with that. I like my moon to keep at least some of its mystery.
