Perigee-Syzygy

Thursday afternoon I stumbled onto some internet post or another that indicated that there would be a lunar phenomenon called a ‘supermoon" happening Saturday evening.  Not having anything else to do, the wife and I headed south and set up the tripod on a remote county road outside the village of Hatch, New Mexico (where they have the chile festival).  I have included some pictures of the location and a couple of the moon rising over the hills.  The best part was just being out in the country like that, without any sounds or too many traces of civilization.  I do not really have the right lens for astronomy work, but it was a blast all the same.  I would like to go out there again on a moonless night so that we could view the stars unhampered by the glare of man-made or natural lights.  Anyway, on with the photo show.
