Toronto Moon Rise – The Moon Illusion

Photographing the Moon over a Skyline

I had planned to make this picture for a while, but I needed to wait for a clear day. There are people who believe that this can’t be real, but in fact it is 100% real. When you see the moon rise behind something, like a skyline or a horizon, it appears bigger than it does when it’s higher in the sky. The farther you get from the horizon when the moon rises, the bigger it can appear. Using an ultra telephoto 600mm lens, I was able to see Toronto from roughly 50 KM away, I was able to get the moon to look massive coming over the skyline. People call this “The Moon Illusion”.

Also, the moon does not rise in the same place and time every day. I had to use an app called the The Photographer’s Ephemeris to find the exact spot where the moon would line up with the city from 50km away.

The 2015 Canadian Election in Pictures

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau holds his son Hadrien as he exits a campaign rally in Brampton

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau holds his son Hadrien as he exits a campaign rally in Brampton

This year I had the chance to cover the most important process in politics, a federal election. I will not get into politics in this post, but I did want to share a few thoughts on what it’s like to cover and election. For the last week of the election, I was with the Conservative party of Canada and their leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Harper would be defeated by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, the son of the late former Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau.

Over the years of covering Stephen Harper as a Prime Minister, he has always been very controlled and rehearsed when it came time to photograph him. Most of the time, the access granted to journalists and cameras were very sparse. A photo op with Harper often involved being hours early, while you were kept in a holding spot, and then quickly ushered into whatever room or area to photograph him when he and his team were ready. The impression I had is that Harper did not like being in front of cameras for any period of time, in case something went wrong, or something unpredictable happened, ultimately losing control over the situation.

Justin Trudeau does seem to be quite the opposite from Stephen Harper. He plays well to the camera, and rolls with the punches it seems. During his campaign events, unpredictability doesn’t seem to be an issue. Access to him is much more relaxed, and he is much less controlling with his image. However, I do wonder if as Prime Minister of Canada, if he will continue to give access to the press like he did during his election campaign. As they say, the honeymoon is over, and we will see if he grants the same level of access to the press as he did on his way to winning.
