Big Moon

Now really, why DOES the moon look so much bigger with our eyes than it does with a camera? And why does it look so huge on the horizon, but tiny when it’s high in the sky? I read a web page once that speculated over some theories, and love this comic on the shrinking-moon camera phenomenon. Still, when I went to take out my recycling and saw this, I had to stop and TRY to take a picture. Or two. They don’t do it justice, but I’ll post them anyhow:

Moonrise over the neighbor's house using my corolla as a tripod. One of these days I'll buy a better camera than my Elph...
Full moon rising
Moonrise through the maple tree, using my mailbox for stabilization...
