Super Moon

Philippines

I just want to share this picture. It was taken in Baguio City, Philippines. I just think this was a spectacular image as we only see it rarely. I even wrote a story while I was watching which I will share later on. What do you guys think of this image?

It's pretty, but is it real? If it is, someone has a very high resolution camera and did some cropping.

Odd that the foreground is focused, the moon is focused, and everything between isn't

@hereandthere I got it from a shared post from my junior schoolmate, it's actually not mine but I liked and saved it because I had a bad image of the one I took in my phone.
