Supermoon Rising over the Thames

Supermoon Rising over the Thames

Shot down at the Thames. I guess tonight the moon is larger than it has been for a long while. Honestly I can’t tell the difference between this full moon and any other I have seen over the last few years. Of course the haze in the air is making it look much larger, and also the fact that it is so low to the horizon. But tonight is the night of the supermoon rising over the thames… for whatever that means

To edit this image I first used Lightroom, then I thought I should try to tweak it in Macphun’s new software called Lumina. I guess I’m still learning the new software because I was not able to get the layers to blend the way I intended. Then again I have been working on a bottle of Jameson for the last few hours. Not to mention all the Guinness I have been drinking while editing. Eventually I got it to look the way I intended.

If you are interested in checking out Macphun’s Lumina it’s pretty freaking great. I combines a lot of their existing products into one great editing too.


Tomorrow I head to Wales for the first time ever. Pretty excited about this next stage of my travel. And I will admit that most of my excitement comes from the fact that I will get to take photos with #RoadtripNick on top of the elevator to Torchwood.


Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
