Super Perigee Moon Over Rural Oregon

A perigee moon hangs in a cloudy sky over our farm in rural Douglas County near Elkton . The perigee moon appears large because it is at the closest point in the orbit's ellipse to the Earth.
I was setup to capture moonrise, but the clouds were thick in the east. Photos shot with long exposures on the cloudy night.
Zuma Press used one of my moon photos in their Pictures of the Day Gallery
