March Moonset

The other day we left home right at sunrise.  To the west the full moon was just setting and it was huge and orange against a heavy blue horizon. 

Gorgeous.

No camera.   I told the girls to look hard because they'd probably never see the moon light that again.   In all my years, I'd never seen a moon like it. 

And the next morning, since the weather was the same,  I got up with fingers crossed and camera at the ready to go hang out on the road in that part of the county just in case the moon did the same thing.

It didn't, but I did get some other nice pics of other things. 

And just as I got back to our place, I got this pic of the moon setting over our trees.   Pretty.

  1. The moon does the same thing as Mt. Fuji in Japan: on some days, it was just a bump on the horizon with a familiar shape. Walk down the street and turn the corner and WHOA, it was huge and you could almost touch it. Weird optics. It's always good to stare at the moon and see it with new eyes. It's wonderful that we have a planet that close! Thanks for those pictures!

  2. Those are beautiful. I tell you, girl, you should start a section on your blog for writers, and let them use your photographs as writing prompts. They're that great. Maybe Lily could do it on hers . . .
