I finished class a bit early today and managed to catch the 4 ferry, getting home just at dusk to see this full moon rising above the coastal mountains. As with these photos taken several moons ago, I suppressed the flash and held the camera as steady as I could for a slower shutter opening. So they're not as sharp as they could be, but they capture the dusky blue and the emerging moon quite effectively, I think.
Clear nights, perfect for viewing the full moon, have been accompanied by cooler temperatures (hovering five degrees either side of freezing) and a possibility of flurries later in the week. So I'm bundling up and enjoying the drier weather and the gorgeous view. Reminds me of a night when my son was still living at home, and he suggested we turn off all the lights so we could sit and enjoy the moon gleaming on the water. That's what I'm going to do now, thinking of Zach and of all my loved ones who might not be with me but are under the same moon. . .
Do you know that song?
