Due to the warm weather, I have been outside earlier in the morning and later at night than usual. So I’ve been seeing more of the moon. I had tried getting pictures of it in the sky near Seven Dolors Church, but was disappointed with how they turned out. Right around the same time Lynda Michelle posted a photo of the moon and we exchanged a few comments which determined me to try again. At around 10 p.m. last night the moon was bright orange – like a sunrise and just captivating. So I grabbed my camera and tripod and ran outside to try to get a good shot. I didn’t quite manage to capture the glowing orange color – maybe I need to use a filter? – but I did get a few photos that indicate what a beautiful scene it was. Lynda Michelle took her photo when it was not quite as dark out, but I loved the contrast between the dark sky and the orange moon. Every time I see the moon like that, I am amazed that it is just reflecting the light of the sun. Thanks for the encouragement, Lynda Michelle.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
