Amazing! One day I’m going to be somewhere I can see the moon like this. 🙂
Thank you! I forget that the lights of the city block out so much. Living a few miles from town I can see so many stars.
It really is an awesome shot, and yes, the night sky is very different with all the lights of the city. 🙂
The city lights have their own beauty 🙂
True, it is a beautiful skyline 🙂
Arresting and beautiful shot, wowza! I too in all my ignorance wonder why it is called a Beaver Moon???
Native Americans once set beaver traps by the light of the first full moon in November when beavers are active.
There you have it!
My Indian name is Woman With Many Words. 🙂
LOL – glad to know you are on top of useful info like this.
Was just talking to my dad this morning about last night’s moon. He always calls to ask if I saw the moon, meteors, email he sent that I didn’t respond to…
He tells me important things I need to know, like when to chop down trees so the stumps will rot and other info that is useful here in suburbia. HA!
That’s pretty neat actually. I was talking with a friend on FB last night who is wintering in Mexico (poor thing) – we were all seeing the same moon last night. That stump thing – I want the details. I wonder if your dad knows about fat wood.
fantastic, thank you so much!
Wow, this has got to be one of favourites!
Thanks Dianna – I love how the light of the full moon lights up the whole mountainside. I got some sharp shots after the haze went away, but they pretty much look like every other moon shot I’ve taken.
I love the halo effect in this one! I believe that some cultures believed it was a bad omen though…
After this summer I think clouds of any kind are a good omen:)
It’s beautiful! May I ask why it’s called a Beaver Moon?
The first full moon in November is the time when Native Americans would set beaver traps.
Love it….a perfect full moon tonite….and the lovely Jupiter, too…. It brought to my mind the SS song from when I was little….”It took Him just a week to make the moon and the stars, the sun and the earth and jupiter and mars….” 🙂 GREAT shot!
Thanks – I loved that song. It really was a perfect moon tonight – I forgot to leave any lights on when I went to work this morning so when I got home tonight the moon was the only light. The haze has lifted so I was just able to go outside and get a few shots, but Jupiter has moved out of the frame 😦
I took a few with my phone camera….just not the same. You. Done. Good. Jupiter or not! 🙂
Thanks 🙂 – It’s tough with a cell phone for sure. I have to shoot the moon full manual. I managed to get some crater shots just now – it’s almost directly overhead.
You will have to share! Awesome.
I’ve never seen anything like this before.
The moon was so bright I knew I wasn’t going to get any detail, so I decided to get the limbs in focus and run with it. The color was odd – there was a light haze. Most of the shots I saw taken locally on FB have some of the orange in them.
Wow, great shot.
Love this shot, it’s really different from all the other Beaver Moon shots of the evening, so pretty!
Thanks – there was a light haze here tonight and the glare was pretty harsh, I had to try something different.
I love it. Just a beauty. Nice shot.
