    This image was taken during the rare celestial trifecta (super-blue-blood moon) happened at the beginning of 2018. We decided to watch the moon setting over the Pacific as there was a prediction for clear coast. As the partially eclipsed moon was setting over the Pacific, the seascape turned into a blue and pink canvas, reflecting light from the far east. This is a favorite of mine since, luckily, I also got an early riser watching the setting moon from the pier in the frame. Superfecta moment!

    Your Shot photographer Marc Henauer commented "The moon has always been a source of poetic inspiration for man. Here it takes a particular dimension by the rarity of the phenomenon. The "Super Blue Blood Moon" will not happen again until 2037. The colors, the size of the moon in perspective with the small human silhouette at the end of the pontoon make it a picture full of sweetness. Thank you for having captured this moment with so much poetry."
