Super Flower Moon: Stunning photo captures Moon over Edinburgh Castle
An amateur photographer has taken a stunning picture of a “Super Flower Moon” in the skies above Edinburgh Castle last night.
Graham Gaw travelled across the city to find the perfect vantage point to capture the striking image on film.
Graham, who uses the “Photographer's Ephemeris” to take photos of the Moon and stars in Capital’s skies, said the hardest problem to solve is “the weather and clouds”.
“Last night, the only bit of cloud seemed to be sitting behind the Castle, but it parted just at the right moment giving stunning views,” he explained.
This year, the May full Moon, also known as the “Flower Moon”, coincided with a “Super Moon” - when it is at its closest to the Earth - making it appear far larger and brighter than usual.
