    Supermoon: From Summer to Harvest


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     FranciscoLozano shared a collection of supermoon photographs he took on September 9 and 10 from Garden Valley, Idaho. The images featuring the lighthouse are from August's supermoon, which he captured in Long Beach, California. "I have been fascinated by supermoons since the 90s when I studied photography," he said.

    A super moon is any photographer's dream and challenge as well as an infatuation if not a love affair.
    Last month I was in the Los Angeles area when it happened. I did not get a chance to photograph it the the night that it happened and instead I photographed it in the morning in Long Beach CA.
    I have been photographing full moons ever since I remember. Living on the mountains of Idaho is more of a challenge because one doesn't see the moon until almost an hour after the flat lander does creating technical difficulties if one wants to include the landscape in the images.


    I remember when living in Los Angeles and driving on the freeways and all of the sudden there it was, right in front of me as a big balloon that escaped from some kid's hands. Bright and big; so close that one would want to reach out and touch it.


    In this slideshow I included the latest moon shot on Monday and Tuesday night in Garden Valley, Idaho; the one from Long Beach CA with the light house last month, a couple of them while traveling through Nevada last month and even some from Riverside CA about 3 years ago; other ones go back a couple of years.


    Hope you enjoy my infatuation with the moon. Come, follow me through my lens!
