Blue Moon



Early this morning - like 4:30
It was so light outside
I opened the door and went outside

The moon was spectacular
Tried to get a good image
Very soon it was out of my view

Wondered if anyone else was wandering
around in their yard
looking at the sky!

Did a little research - with the thought "is this a Harvest Moon?"

All articles stated that it was known as a Blue Moon.

Was going to see if I could enhance the image - but thought I would leave it
authentic.

If you enlarge you can see a little more detail.

Capturing the moon through a camera is almost impossible without a tripod. It moves...you move...still lovely views early this morning!

Tabor, early this morning the color of the moon was beautiful. It may repeat tonigh - but do not think I will be outside wandering around in my pajamas :)

That picture was so pretty. Reminds me of the song...Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone..

A cold draught
across the clouds
and she wakes up
and appears
at the sky window
messing up
while trying
to
push back
her tousled hair
from her face,
framed
in the light
of the lamp
powered by the Sun....

Leaves
stretching their veins
and shrugging off the dew;
branches shivering
in the early dawn,
she hears the far away chirping
of the birds,
takes a resigned breath,
taps a cloud
in reassurance
and carries on
to her hilly abode....

Celestial Damsels
of the Night
dont participate
in competitions
with the Sun....

Spectacular is the word for the photos of the moon and your last photo of a golden red sky. You are an early riser:)
