Very rugged landscape! This is really the moon? It's very bright behind those clouds. I was really impressed when I saw the tiny poles...they really give a sense of the scale. Beautiful photo, Eve.

That's a big moon. Ganymede or somethin'?

Thanks for your visit and for commenting, ingawah, Ryan and YBMW. The moon looked very large, maybe a little smoke in the air was magnifying it.

Nah, it's Titan, Dann ;).

Yesterdays full moon was the largest of the year, appearing ~ 15% magnified. I heard it on npr.

Caleb, I was taking this photo when I would normally be listening to "All things considered" so I missed it ;)!

My room was very bright last night, Eve. Must be the moon...

Eve, this is a beautiful composition as well as a moon shot! Very nice!

And many thanks to Caleb for the explanation of the size of the full moon this month. It was startling. Good to know I wasn't imagining it!

Thank you, Kamaly, for your positive words. And thanks again for the explanation, Caleb.
