Super Moon Over Tensta

The "super moon" over Tensta, seen from Granholmstoppen. Photographing it turned out to be harder than expected, since the moon is a very bright object - what one doesn't think about is that the moon is covered in light-gray regolith, and is being illuminated by the full force of the sun. The result is that the moon's surface is about as bright as the Earth's surface during noon on the equator. The rest of the view, however, is nighttime Earth, and that requires long exposures.
