The moon is always spectacular at the coast. The cold moonlight is reflected in the water and is modelling the landscape. Even if the light seam to be strong, its ability to light up the landscape is limited that creates strong contrasts that is challenging for photographers. The moon disk becomes over exposed if details in the landscape should appear.

When the moon is over the horizon and the sun just set, an exiting mix of sun- an moonlight is created that brings out details in the motives.

The moon is moving in an elliptical orbit around the earth and when the full moon is closest to the earth its called “supermoon”. The “supermoon” is 14% larger and 30% brighter compared to a normal full moon.

As the time for moonrise and the moons position at the horizon varies from day to day, the days before and after the “supermoon” offers fantastic opportunities for a photographer.
