This is a blue moon. That’s when you get two full moons in one month. It’s actually full tomorrow night but looked full enough to me tonight.
I don’t get to see much of the moon from my house but I saw it on my way home from walkies with Vida and snapped this shot from the car at a stop street. It actually caught me by surprise, as I turned a corner there it was straight ahead, like a big round cheese.
I didn’t even attempt the impression of the moon rolling down the wire, that’s just a fluke. I cropped out the traffic but deliberately left the pole on the left and street light on the right, by the way.
The colours of the sky were stunning – many many different shades of blue, the sunset looked promising. I decided to drop Vida off at home and drive to a higher point to watch the moon rise and take more photos. Unfortunately, by the time I got home dark clouds were starting to cover the moon so I abandoned the idea and went indoors to have a glass of wine and do some work and make supper. Boring, I know.
Maybe this month’s blue moon should be dedicated to Neil Armstrong who died this month. He certainly represents something extremely special, for our times anyway. I was about to say the most amazing thing of our times but there’s also the internet, that’s pretty amazing and certainly of more practical use to you and me than the moon landing.
That’s of course if you believe in the moon landing 🙂
