There were three “Super moons” in 2014, July, August and September. Most photographers concentrated on the night of the full moon, but the “super moon” was still super as it waned to last quarter and I photographed the moon over British Columbia’s Inside Passage and Douglas Channel while on a fishing and photography trip last weekend. So here is the September moon, shot first in Vancouver at the full moon and then the last quarter a week later.
