I wanted to do something different with the Super Moon. Casey and I talked about it yesterday and looked at various locations around town to try to come up with something. I originally wanted to do the Hallettsville Courthouse, which is also lit up with Christmas lights, but when I went to town at lunch I didn't think it would work.

At the last minute, I decided to drive 35 miles to a rig location in hopes of getting a good shot. I'm pleased with the way this turned out, for the most part.

On Casey's suggestion, I shot around f/16 to "star" the rig lights, so I had to bump the ISO to 12,500 and tried to stay around 1/100th second.

As the moon got higher, it also got brighter, which made it hard to get proper exposure on the rig and the moon. I'm not great with editing, but I made a few adjustments in LR until it looked decent on my monitor.
