May 7, 2012


The biggest and the brightest moon of the year arrived during Saturday, May 5th 2012. It created great opportunity for many photographers among the world to capture the beauty of the full moon by keeping some lovely foreground objects. I also attempted to capture the Supermoon on the 5th and the 6th May as the minimum distance from earth was at 9:00am IST.
