Full moon over Santiago (largest full moon of 2009)

I set my alarm this morning for 5.30am, because only at this time can I view the moon at perigee from the comfort of my living room, with the tripod set up, and without freezing to death while setting up the shot (the window stays open for only a little longer than the 1/800th of a second it took to get this shot). Of course you get less contrast in a full moon than a crescent moon, but it's still a lot of fun to play around with the new zoom. I still yearn for liveview!
