The Supermoon of April 2020

There are so many genres of photography with which I’m fascinated — genres I rarely get the opportunity to practice or even try.  Night photography is one of them.  But on the 8th of April 2020, a supermoon was going to be visible in a clear sky over London.  As I don’t have an extra long telephoto lens for my Canon 5D, I instead fished out my old Powershot SX30 from my camera gear stash.  This little beauty has a fixed lens, but what a job this little thing can do (it can emulate an 840mm!).  I was astonished by the detail I could see in this rare supermoon.  Sometimes capturing a photo phenomenon on the fly does work.
