An important lesson in photography: The best camera is the one you have with you. The day before the “Supermoon”, I wanted to scout some location where I could take the best photos of said supermoon with Berliner background. I had found my position near the Oranienburger Strasse, and was satisfied. Here I could shoot great photos tomorrow.
Enjoying the evening we bought two beers and walked along the river Spree. As I said, I really didn’t want to make photos this evening – perhaps just to test the new camera a bit to get familiar with it, but that’s it. Therefore we just sat by the water, enjoying the view on the Berlin Cathedral with the moon just above it. Fortunately, Daria mentioned so often how beautiful the scene was, that I unpacked my equipment and took this one photo.
And now that I see the result I’m so glad to have shot the photo. Especially since the supermoon next day wasn’t really an option due to the cloudy sky. If it wasn’t for this shot, I would have nothing from the supermoon 2014.
